hee, I'm a business user and I have most of my basic need covered. Only business graphics is pain in the ass. I really miss Visio.

There is Dia of course, but you cannot do anything with your drawings (and it's clumsy). Kivio is a total crap.

I definitely need VISIO (or Corel FlowCharter)

Visio sounds like an excellent candidate for Wine!

it's interesting to mention DOS. alot of people actually liked that operating system and i think it has more in common with Linux than Windows ever will.

cheers

Amen!
Actually, the reason I started using Linux is because I started missing the good ol' command prompt. And since WindowsME didn't have an MS-DOS mode... So, Microsoft DROVE ME to use Linux!

No problem, perry.

It runs a whole bunch of other stuff, too that Wine doesn't. I don't know what they are, because I haven't visited their site recently; I've never used it, either.

Program for Linux ARM

What about Adobe Acrobat or similar PDF app (not just a Reader) for Linux ARM/Xscale devices? It would be Great to be able to use PDF electronic forms on a handheld device like the Sharp Zaurus SL 760. Realistically, there are many businesses and professions (my own included) that collect and rely upon field data on a daily basis (while away from the office) and, as such, could greatly benefit from such an application. I've searched the Web all over but, unfortunately, nothing addresses this matter. It appears clear that certain outside political and economic forces have influenced the market to the degree that all the focus has been concentrated on mobile phones. I only wish that somebody would wake up and view the total picture as there exist other devices (like that mentioned above) that can do so much more if we had this cross-platform capability.
