Yes. Depending on the program, it may pull in quite a few dependences but it should run ok. Some programs will run slower than they would in their native environment, but this usually isn't an issue.

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.

Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
