1) AIM replacement
2) MSN messenger replacement
3) media player w/skinnable interface
4) C++ and Java IDEs, preferable with interfaces similar to NetBeans or Visual Studio .NET (I read somewhere that either IBM or Intel, forgot which, has one for Linux)
5) PDF reader (the PDF Viewer prog that comes with Red Hat doesn't do the job adequately)
6) file sharing program
9) syncing program for a PDA (iPaq, not Palm) (This might be a tough one since it's running a compact version of Windows...)
Also, I don't suppose it's possible to play my games in Linux (the ones that require MS's DirectX)?
Sorry, missed that last bit. Check out www.transgaming.com for information on DirectX based games under Linux. They make a product called WineX that allows you to play some games. They have a nice big directory of what games are supported.
