Difficult? Why would it be difficult?

WiFi works
NIC's work
3D works
Audio works

What doesn't work in Linux/x86?

//What doesn't work in Linux/x86?//

Viruses, spyware, keyloggers and malware of a huge variety ... virtually the entire lot.

Lock-in and "lack of interoperability". ActiveX and other similar security holes.

DRM and other rights-removing applications.

WGA and similar "system killer" schemes.

CD keys and other types of registration.

The whole lot doesn't work at all in Linux.
