Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

WordPerfect. There is an old version for Linux, but I can't get it to work. I have years of old client files in WordPerfect. It would be nice to be able to access them from Linux. I would use nothing but Linux if it was compatible with my old WordPerfect files.
I would also like to have a Linux hearts game. Please don't send me a gazillion replies asking why.
seems safe to say that there are many people who want the steam/valve games and alot of macromedia products so i cant see as they have an excuse not to port those unless there are some patient nastys going about
Nero has come out with a linux version that seems to work much better than k3b. I haven't been able to record anything except iso's with k3b. Currently I can record cd-r and cd-rw. I am excited about trying out both dvd recording formats (-r/rw and +r/rw). Please pass this along and post it for all to see! This is great! the website to download this wonderful program is http://www.nero.com/en/NeroLINUX.html
Distribution: Ubuntu, Fedora, PCLinux, MEPIS, still miss Libranet
I'll have to check it out. When it was released a couple months ago(not sure how long ago) it required Nero6 key, so it wasn't worth it to many to buy Nero6 for windows only to get Nero for Linux.
I haven't had any problems with K3B. It does everything I've needed so far, but I liked Nero in Windows so I want to give this a try.
edit: Not impressed...couldn't even burn a cd image. I'm happy with K3B so I'll stick with it. I've read good things about Nero used by others, but it doesn't work for me. Oh well.
Re: What programs would you like to see ported to Linux?
Originally posted by jeremy This thread is for letting vendors know that there is interest in porting one of their programs to Linux. Let us know what programs you would like to see ported and why. Details such as how much you would be willing to pay may be helpful as well. If there is enough interest for certain programs I will even contact the vendor myself.
