    Can third party softwares, eg. Limewire, Games, and other applications be installed in Mac OS?
    Only Mac version softwares can be installed in Mac OS, if not, I have to install them in Windows, am I right?

    Why not install the Mac versions when available?

    Windows software can't be installed on a Mac
    Mac software can't be installed on Windows

    This has to be the weirdest question I've read to date on here.

    yes i don't see what you are trying to do here, for most of your windows applications there is a mac counterpart, sometimes better, sometime snot so much. Also some software is now UB meaning it can be installed on any platform....so iguess what I'm tryingt o say it's whatever (most)you need to do, there is a mac way of doing it..and sometime syou'll be surprised how much easier and better it is to do it on a mac..
