Here is a list of the programs that i use the most on Windoze,
Could you tell me what programs do the same function on linux? And also where i can download them. (Only free programs please!)
  • Alcohol 120% (can copy and burn protected CDs)
  • ClonyXXL (can find the protection type of a CD)
  • Corel Photo Paint (Graphics)
  • Corel Draw (Graphics)
  • Typing Master (Practice tiping on the keyboard)
  • CoolEdit (Editing Sounds)
  • Winamp (plaing MP3s)
  • Windows/Total Commander (Disk explorer (something like Windows Explorer))
  • Norton Anivirus (AntiVirus protection)
  • Ad-aware (Anti Spy-ware)
  • KaZaA/E-donkey (Pear2Pear programs)
  • 3D Max/Zmodeler (Modeling)
  • Adobe Reader
  • Borland Delphi (Pascal Programming)
That would be it...
Thanks a lot!

Re: Widows -> Linux Programs

Better yet, search here. This sort of thing is asked all the time and answered. You can also check out the LQ Members Choice Awards. And you can search freshmeat by category.
[*]Alcohol 120% (can copy and burn protected CDs)
cdrecord/xcdroast (protected CDs? I dunno)[*]ClonyXXL (can find the protection type of a CD)
?[*]Corel Photo Paint (Graphics)
Gimp[*]Corel Draw (Graphics)
Gimp[*]Typing Master (Practice tiping on the keyboard)
I forget - there is something.[*]CoolEdit (Editing Sounds)
? - maybe audacity?[*]Winamp (plaing MP3s)
xmms[*]Windows/Total Commander (Disk explorer (something like Windows Explorer))
endeavour, xfe - konqueror and nautilus if you have them around - dual pane's better[*]Norton Anivirus (AntiVirus protection)
F-Prot[*]Ad-aware (Anti Spy-ware)
?[*]KaZaA/E-donkey (Pear2Pear programs)
?[*]3D Max/Zmodeler (Modeling)
?[*]Adobe Reader
xpdf/gv[*]Borland Delphi (Pascal Programming)
Pascal? I dunno. But vim probably.

If you're looking for the exact app, there aren't a whole lot of apps that run on both systems without wine or dosemu. Most that run on both MS and Linux are DOS-based.

A footnote : You have Adobe reader for linux. You can download it from the adobe web site.

And you don't need any ad-aware programs for linux. You can use the bundled firewall to stop any unwanted programs, and your browser(Mozilla or Konqueror) will by itself reject most ad progs.

No problem. Probably. If not google will turn them up. Some should already be on your box unless you did a really minimal install.

Go to this site:

http://linuxshop.ru/linuxbegin/win-l...en/table.shtml

It is exactly what you are looking for; a list of software and their Linux equivalent or replacement.
