Why not it can be .exe?
On Linux the file extension is meaningless. Just "chmod +x" it and you can run whatever file.

You just have to drag and drop it to the terminal, but I agree. As a new Linux user (I gave up for desktop use, I just use it as a desktop server) I think it is much too confusing to have it named .exe.
I fold with: 9800GX2, 8800 GS, 1,3GHz Athlon and 1,8GHz Athlon 64
I BOINC with: Q6600 2,4GHz and Athlon X2 2,2GHz
