Will I be able to use programs for Windows natively on the Windows partition in a Macbook Pro?

Yes in the Windows partition, if you have Windows installed. To run Windows apps on your Mac, you need to install Windows via Boot Camp or use Parallels or VMware Fusion.

If you don't have a Windows license, you can use CrossOver to run some applications. Not all Windows apps are compatible with CrossOver. Check their site for compatible apps.

For more information about running Windows on your Mac, check out the Windows on the Mac forum.
