Your right.  you won't be able to run windows apps on it.

Certainly not without doing a lot of messing around.

There are emulators that require extensive configuration to make them work
with windows applications but the resulting applications run in a space
that linux screen readers cant get access to and windows screen readers
won't work in.

Of course, that doesn't mean that it won't be very useful.  Linux has
every kind of application Windows has from word processors, databases,
spread sheets, very powerful email clients and accessible web browsers.
