ExaGear Desktop enables running on ARM devices almost any x86 Linux application. Also x86 Windows applications can be run if they work with Wine. Below you can find the most popular cases of apps and games that you can run with ExaGear Desktop on your ARM device.
If you follow the links given below you can find step-by-step instructions of how to run certain app or game on Raspberry Pi with ExaGear Desktop. Also these tutorials can be applied on other ARM devices.
x86 Linux apps
We've successfully tested the following Linux apps. Moreover we've published how to tutorials that are easy to follow:
- TeamSpeak 3 Server
- Chrome browser
- VPN PIA (Private Internet Access)
x86 Windows apps
Current version of ExaGear Desktop provides x86 Linux environment and you need to use Wine (winehq.org) to run x86 Windows programs there. Please check that your Windows program is compatible with Wine either in this list https://appdb.winehq.org/ or by running your Windows program with Wine on x86 Linux machine. If it works with Wine than it will work fine on ARM device with ExaGear.

ExaGear Desktop allows to run PC games on Raspberry Pi 2 and 3 and other ARM-based devices.
Note! If you would like to run PC games on Raspberry Pi 2 and 3 you need to enable hardware graphics acceleration as described here.
Here is the list of games that we've successfully tested on RPi:
- Counter Strike
- Diablo II
- Disciples II
- Heroes of Might and Magic 3
- Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri
- Caesar 3
- Might and Magic 6
- Pharaoh and Cleopatra
- Stronghold Crusader Extreme HD
Note! Unfortunately you cannot run PC games and multimedia apps on Raspberry Pi 1 and Zero because these devices do not support SIMD instructions. So, the list of supported apps and games is limited for those devices.
