Adobe PS & Illusrator would make my day


I see many others feel the same way.

I called Adobe about it and they said be patient, it's a matter of time.

So until then...

I'd like to see macromedia's

Shockwave Director plugin

ported to Linux. Currently, only their Flash plugin runs native linux, and to run shockwave you need wine.

Huh?

Linux has been able to natively create PDF files from day 1.

some while ago Corel made a port of CorelPhotopaint 9 .. which is now .. well quite old, and isn't even downloadable anymore on corel's site ...

i must say that i allways use corel in windows and i find Gimp to be less handy ...

so maybe they can make a new port of an eldered version (i don't think they'll want to make a free port of corel photopaint 12 while they are still selling that for windows users) like 10 or 11 ???

i'm sure lots of users would like corel PP over gimp once they get to know it

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Gecko-based browsers (Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape, etc.) are the best browsers. PNG support without jumping through and everything. ActiveX may be great, but. . . everything else about MSIE sucks.

Even Tux Paint (a Linux paint program for kids) is better than MS Paint.

(don't know if it will find the dirs and linux doesn't have viruses?)

There are Linux viri but they are EXTREMELY rare and most Linux users aren't idiotic enough to click on every random attachment that comes in.

Also, since when does Ad-Aware scan for viri instead of spyware? Seriously, if you're relying on Ad-Aware to protect your system from viruses, your system is probably already infected. Ad-Aware does not protect you from viruses at ALL.

There is no spyware (in the common vernacular meaning - ignoring true spyware such as keyloggers, etc.) currently targeting anything other than MSIE on Windows (MSIE is the best browser, right? )

Quote:
Windows volume control stuff- I don't get how to use the KDE one(now label just a little pic)
Windows Multimedia tools are great, but once you learn Xwindows you will probably like X programs better. There are two mixers which are native to KDE in most distributions - kmix and kamix. I prefer kmix but many prefer kamix. There are at LEAST 30 other mixers that are based on gnome, qt, motif, and other GUI libraries, so take your pick!

Quote:
Midtown Madness 2+1- I love these games
Quicktime-do they make quicktime for linux?
There is no Quicktime for Linux, as in, Apple does not produce one, but you can view Quicktime videos on Linux. Ditto for DivX and nearly every other MPeG4 and MPeG2 implementation - and if another variant comes out for Windows, wait a week or two and a library will be released to enable mplayer and xine to play it.

Quote:
winzip-I love the dezip program beter than ark. (mor like linzip now)
Winzip is nice, but again. once you learn Linux and Xwindows, your perspective will change. Tar, gzip, and various GUI wrappers such as Ark are far, far more capable than WinZip ever will be. With that said, the GUI for WinZip IS nice so I agree with you there - from a certiain perspective.

Quote:
Voice SFX- records and you can make it play backwards etc
Audacity, Broadcast 2000, and heck, hundreds of other programs as well. Pro Tools, if you've got the cash.

Quote:

MSbob-people hate this program, I think it is neat. My children love it
Bob sucks. I worked for M$ Support when Bob was out and EVERYONE at Microsoft HATED that darn program. It was an embarassment to Microserfs then, and it should be an embarassment to anyone today who admits to liking that darn thing.

Quote:

calc(from MS)-?
1. You will never see M$ port calc.exe to Linux
2. gcalc is TONS better than calc.exe
3. You can run calc.exe under wine (but see #2 - why would you want to?)

Quote:

really? Microsoft ported it to Linux? Did I miss something?

Quote:
MSWorks-SUCKS
I amended the above quote to make the line correct

MSNmessenger-
You have a point on this one. I see nothing on kopete or gaim projects regarding MSN support.

Quote:
AIM-gaim, kopete
Yahoo messenger-gaim, kopete
Picasa- picture editing and sorter gwenview
BZFlag2.0-they make this for linux

Windows stuff
MS info tons of utilities like this in Xwindows
Explorer-taskbar stuff etcKDE dock, gnome dock, fvwm95 if you're truly a Windows addict
all the other things that come w/ windowsOut of the box, most Linux distributions offer far more functionality than Windows does out of the box

"We don't see any reason for building a linux/unix-driver...."
