Where can I find such a list that makes the direct comparison? The Linux names are still confusing to me...
apart from a few well-known multi-platform software packages (like OpenOffice, or Videolan, or various browsers) I don't think there's a direct correlation. Many windows programs do have a similar counterpart in Linux (though not always an exact match). But if you list a few of those that you're missing, maybe someone who's fluent in both worlds can step in.
