one program? to do all that? in linux? .exe files are generally for windows. you can burn isos and bin/cue files with linux, and i'm sure you can find another program to unzip/unrar files too...

The linux mindset is "one application for one job: and do it well". That's why you have programs like "wc" that exist just to tell you how many files words are in a file, but very few applications that will balance your checkbook while playing music and doing a webcam chat for you.

.exe files (assuming you mean self-extracting files) could possibly be opened with wine or something - they're not really designed to open elsewhere.

.zip files can be opened with command line utils (ie: unzip)

IIRC there is a version of RAR for linux

.tar.gz files open well with tar

and you can mount ISO files just like disks drives using the 'mount' command.
