Typically theirs 3 major kinds of precompiled files for linux workstations.

RPM = For redhat based OS's like redhat and CentOS
DEB = For debian based OS's like Ubuntu
DMG = For OS X

Besides these, theirs also source code released with virtually any application. Compiling your own applications takes a bit more time, but you can get anything running this way.
