There is a native version of UT2004, just buy the DVD version and it has the linux version even though the box does not actually say this, that's what I read in LinuxFormat magazine.

Hmm- yeah I hate that, there are a lot of business banks whose software uses IE browsers, so it's not just windows they want you to use but you have to use IE.

I say, vote with your feet and switch banks. I've done it and it's not that hard really, if you can handle linux I'm sure you can handle switching a few direct debits and writing a few letters. My new bank even let me print of example templates to send to my old bank to switch things over.

Well, as I've just switched over to Linux about two weeks ago, I thought I'd be booting into Windows a lot more than I have been doing...
Open Office takes care of everything that Microshaft Office did (and for free) and apart from a few little niggles about setting things up properly and getting things installed and configured correctly in Linux I'm totally happy with it and I don't see me abandoning Linux and going back to Micro$oft anytime soon.....

However, I do boot into Windoze to use some audio software, but I'm looking around for a Linux equivalent, and the only other things I use are Photoshop and a couple of games.

I basically only use 'doze to install apps onto my Kyocera phone (not supported via usb in Linux, which is my only connection option) and to try out new games. Plus to access my built in SD card.

I've replaced Outlook with Evolution, Office with Open Office and Quicken with GNUCash seamlessly.

The first three can be run in wine anyway.

please dont tell me you have windows installed for a thesaurus. there is one at dictionary.com

XMMS pwnz it. if it dosent, there are a bunch of others that do.

What is wrong with blender for a SD animator? Granted it costs a bit for the docs, but the application is free and is VERY good.

As far`as iTunes as stated above, XMMS will not even come close, BUT there are some that may. Try Rhythmbox...... I have not gotten it fully installed but it looks promissing...
