go to http://www.roxio.com and tell them you want a Linux version of the Roxipo CD DVD creator for Linux. Tell them they need to get the Roxio Player to work with DVD's that are (C) and protected, so that you can play them, not copy them. I think FreeBSD and SuSe need to get off it and wake up, not everyone is out there to steal the DVD movies, we just want to be able to watch them, since not everyone has 2 DVD Players for the Home like me.

Since when have copy protection had any effect on p2p? In my opinion, copy protection only affect legitimate users.
EDIT: Now this is getting really off topic. Sorry.

What programs would you like to see ported to Linux?

The dial-up account part of America Online (AOL).

More generally, anything that is proprietary for Windows, and that will be super-useful and even "NECESSARY" when run in a Linux-only environment.

Wine does not run every Windows app (see its site at http://www.winehq.com/ )
The LQ "Linux software equivalent to Windows software" wiki at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/...ndows_software could use some more entries maybe?

Definitely would need those apps ported to Linux to make my transfer from XP to Gentoo final:

- CCE
- AVI Synth
- DVD Decrypter
- mIRC (bugs every 30 secs with wine!)
- DVD2AVI and etc etc everything that's used around those 3 first apps

That's about it. Everything else, I have what I need with Linux (been using it for 2-3 days and god I'm lovin' it )

Talking

I have been using computers for the past few years. I have a small list of softwares (propritery) which if ported to linux could go a long way in pushing the OS to the mainstream.

1) Photoshop - because almost 99% of the graphics artists around the world use it. (ps: I am a great fan of GIMP)
2) Macromedia Director - because most of the Multimedia CD's including some encyclopedias (boxed products ) and educational Cds ( a big hit amoung the parents of school going kids) are created using macromedia director.
3) Macromedia Flash - Not compulsary but would have been nice
4) Apple Quicktime player - because I find the movie clips in many important websites like news sites having a video clip of quicktime format.
5) Adobe Acrobat - And I am NOT talking about acrobat reader which is already ported to linux.
6) Adobe Premier - The most popular video editing software.
7) Adobe Illustrator & Corel Draw - Both are popular in the desktop publishing industry. And an equvalent of the same power and flexiblity is lacking in the linux platform.
8) MS Office - heh heh, I am not pulling anybody's leg - MSWord is having a strong following. And in many places a word processor is synonymous to MSWord. Though I use OpenOffice.org for my needs and am fully satisfied with it.

That is all that come to mind at the present.
I really don't care for games and I think that the games that are installed by default in linux are really good and will do.
