virtualdub: best freeware EVER
The best freeware program ever made is windows only, namely virtualdub.
I would really, really like to see a decent, simple videoeditor for linux, in the past few days i have been trying to find one for gentoo, and NONE of them works. They are all crap compared to virtualdub !!
Originally posted by ezra143 DRIVERS!!! Why cant companies simply add *nix drivers to thier product cd's. I love linux, but im getting tired of hour long configs for the simplest of hardware. I spent nearly 11 hours trying to get my wireless network card to work ( it does now), but the lack of support from the company makes me thing again about buying from them.
Yep, this is my definitely my biggie as well. I could care less about any of the other software.
I want people to make good open-source alternatives. For example, Linux needs more games but we don't need DirectX ported to Linux; we need video cards that fully support OpenGL and games that use it etc.
But there are a few closed "standards" that we would need to depend on the company to make open-source, like Flash / Shockwave. Flash on Linux sucks because Macromedia are being jerks and won't open it up...
1. Video Editor for Linux
2. Active sync or equivalent ( easy sync program for pocket pc to Linux desktop and KDE address book)
3. ITunes or Music-match Jukebox for linux
4. A microsoft access equivalent
5. More drivers for linux -- and make it easier to configure hardware
6. More games for Linux

Considering that Photoshop for other platforms goes for over $500, I doubt you're going to see Photoshop for Linux at $300 or less. You might see Photoshop Elements for less, but Photoshop Elements is the diet coke of image editors.
