software for Linux


Ok, I got my wife to switch to linux. Now to keep her on it, I need a couple of comparable programs. She use printmaster gold to make cards and stuff also, she used windows movie maker. Is there anything like these programs for linux?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

A few recommendations besides the Link.
Compupic: Free and creates cards. Very easy and powerful. k3b as a CD burner. Teach her OpenOffice writer, Drawing, SpreadSheet at a minimum. With XMMS, turn on expanded stereo. Spoils you for anything less. GnuCash, and the dictionary/thesaurus applets on the KDE taskbar. The above is what sold my wife!

Heck, just followed the link again myself. Need to take KmyMoney for a test drive. Have fun at the link, I am like a kid in a candy store there.
