Oooh, that's a good one! I've never had the Linux OCR packages recognize so much as a single letter. I've tried scanning everywhere from 75dpi through 2400dpi, with both industrial and consumer scanners,with NO success. OCR is not a good example of good-quality open source.

Is there a screen saver that shows the 'Blue Screen of Death'?

This will really give the unsuspecting XWindow user a heart attack. :-)

I would like to see the whole Lotus Smartsuite ported to Linux. That way there would
almost be a complete package to cover both worlds of Linux and Windows. Then there
would be no reason not to go to using Linux. Thanks....>

Yes, I believe that is part of the xscreensaver package now.

drivecrypt

www.drivecrypt.com

benefits.

1. data partition encryption to 1344 bit triple blowfish.
2. os partition encryption to 256 aes. cannot boot without entering password at mbr stage (which gives drive error message, so user not even aware of an os on the hard drive).
3. 4 line password + fingerprint scan + hardware mix possible.
4. all encrypted partitions can have hidden partitions inside them, so can defeat rubber glove decryption method (don't ask me to explain).

lorisdaboris: you could try gnutella: Limewire Gtk-gnutella Bearshare etc. I use GiFT which does all the networks.

I'd love QCD to be imported to Linux.
Apparently it can work with Wine, but I've had no success with it

Why would we want Drivecrypt when we (hopefully) have TrueCrypt coming?

I would really like to see TrueCrypt for liunx (as mentioned).

I would also love Exact Audio Copy to be ported (or the development of cdparanoia to continue). I need secure reading of audio CDs.

Sorry if someone has said it already, but 104 pages was a bit much to read ATM. The one thing that I have witnessed, which is holding the business world from taking Linux/BSD seriously as a desktop platform, is the lack of serious acounting/payroll pakages and Autocad. Emma just wont keep a medium sized business accountant happy, really need something Great Plains-ish. The CAD apps available are just so sad that it is not even worth mentioning them to a draftsperson, unless you enjoy people laughing heartilly at your suggestions. Wine has some success, but emulation is really not the way, and I am sure that Cad users would agree with me, additional memory, setup, blah blah, businesses just don't have the time to get emulation 'just right' or rely on it in a production environment.
This has been the case where I work, and all the companies we are affiliated with, OOo has done wonders with the office suite field, and I really see OOo as a real alternative to Microsoft Office these days, and look forward to what will eventuate there with V2, however, untill accounting and AutoCAD have a serious home in open source, the sad truth is that many businesses will avoid moving away from Microsoft. There is no real adavantage when you still need Microsoft licensing for the accounting and drafting apps you need, and then more for *nix setup deployment, learning etc. 1 operating system is a pain in the you know what as it is, let alone having to have 2 to enjoy the superior capabilities of a *nixish system while still being tied to windows for drafting and the most important function of a business - Payroll!! (Pay is most important from my point of view anyways)
