are you joking ?

It's been one year since my only O.S. is linux (MDK).
At home and at work.
No dual boot; just linux.

Tasks:

- Writing this message.
- Gaming (Quake, CounterStrike)
- Programming (java & C)
- Reading & writing ALL kind of docs. For private and professional use (.doc, .xls, .pdf,...)
- Listen to music play lists (mp3, ogg)
- Watching video.
- EDITING video.
- Capturing photos from digital camera.
- Burning CD's
- Of course, surfing and email (WITH MY OWN SERVER, NOT @hotmail.com !!!).
- Sharing music.
- Accesing to any other kind of servers.
- Letting my non_into_computers girlfriend surf the internet, chat and email, and play her favourites Pacman & SpaceInvaders games.
- Professional editing of images.
- Professional programming and running of transactional websites.

WANT MORE, man ?


Definitly you don't need to be a guru for all of these:

I have much more trouble REPAIRING MY FRIENDS COMPUTERS RUNNING WINDOWS EACH PAIR OF MONTHS, when they are completely stuck and fearing " oh oh oh I hope my windows has not erased all my data ...oh oh oh "

So please ALL OF YOU PEOPLE STOP SAYING WINDOWS IS EASIER because EVERYONE of you need the help of a linux guru for repairing your crap windows computers each now and then.

Please excuse me for shouting this but I'm beginning to feel sick about this.

And I am not repairing no one's windows installation anymore. OK !!!????

Hello,
I've just moved the thread to Linux - Software. Member Intro is a good place to say 'hello', but questons should be posted to other forums. Your question fits Linux - Software, I think.

Number of applications and system popularity are very close to each other. A system without apps isn't worth much.

I am confused but I suppose you're asking for links for popular apps?

First of all, (unless your using linux on a floppy ), you should already have a lot of popular applications on your distro. (and I suggest that you put it in your profile btw)

Links:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...?s=&forumid=37

The most popular of the popular

freshmeat.net
www.sourceforge.net

There are so many apps you'll having problem in choosing one

www.google.com/linux

when none of the above worked or you're searching by app name

www.happypenguin.org
www.linuxgames.com

for games

hope that's what you're looking for

From what I know, Linux is very popular as server (for example WWW, look at Netfraft stats for details, DNS, ftp and so on). More and more people are using it on desktop (usually for office work - writing documents, calcualtions etc; gaming isn't very popular, but its importance is growing).
