The entire Adobe Creative Suite.

Mac OSX is supposedly so close to linux, so how hard could a linux port be?

As for accounting software, it may be somewhat basic, but I love gnucash.

As for linux being able to natively write PDFs, does that include form fields with FDF functionality, embedded Java, and the ability for multiple users to work on the same file with comments/highlights/etc?

Intuit Quicken

Quicken is my choice! I wait for it since so long... Run OK with wine but a Linux version will be the best thing.

I would like to see better wireless support so I could put linux on a laptop and have it work as well as with winxp. I don't think you can WINE wireless drivers.

I don't think Discreet would ever give a permission to do this....
But anyway, it would be great to have 3ds max ported on Linux.

Heck, forget porting programs, how about getting better hardware support, 3 in 1 printer support (for instance) stinks, and lexmark even released the source for all of its printers. Also auto mounting CD roms should be standard; the minute you put a CD in the drive. AND dual moniter configuration is still archaic lacking any easy GUI. DVD ripping is poor too, we need better CSS decryption and compression support too. Also safe-disk encryption support should be ported to linux (thats why the sims games won't work under linux and several other games); why should you have to pay for a program to run a program you already payed for (mandrake's sim port)!? Lets work with what we have before moving onto porting things over.

I know that Adobe Acrobat Reader has been posted a number of times, but it just went to the top of my list. The reason is that I have just paid for an e-book on Linux and had to download it in Windoze because it needed Acrobat.

I enjoy irony as much as the next man but this is taking the p***

It's not OS/X being close to linux (it isn't. The kernel is BSD and Quartz/Aqua/etc. is Apple's own proprietary creation), it's the fact that Adobe's projects started out on *nix and most of the code is cross-platform already that will make it easy for Adobe to release a *nix version of Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. if they so desired. Sadly, due to their arrogance, they've axed the *nix versions (OS/X aside, although OS/X is a crippled *nix) and won't give Linux users the time of day.

Assail them with requests for Linux versions of Photoshop and Illustrator. The Gimp leaves a lot to be desired, and Photoshop on wine is a weak solution at best.

Sorry, I was looking at the system requirements for the latest version (7.0). I see from the Adobe Website that Acrobat Reader 5.0 is available for Linux. I presume that's what you're using courtrrb. Many thanks.
