Noteworthy


It would be really nice to see Noteworthy Composer and Player ported (these are music creation and playback software which give a neat, easy interface in which to put in a musical score and have it move along as the midi plays back). There are already a few music creation software packages available for Linux, but they are all either under development or come nowhere close to Noteworthy's capabilities.

Anything that would allow me to watch films with Dolby Pro-Logic II (which don't have 5.1 surround), does anyone know of any way to watch films or music in this kind of format (or something simlar, like with PowerDVD/WinDVD)?

It's the one thing I miss from Windows, 5.1 works great and all channels are used for music, but with Pro-Logic II it was much better use of 5.1. I also can't afford an external amp that supports it as I'm a skint Ph D student.

correct me if im wrong, but isnt dolby pro-logic II just a center, right, left, and rear speakers all muxed into 2 channel stereo? As a matter of fact, I am pretty sure that is what it is. All you would need is a dolby pro-logic II decoder/amplifier (you can often find these for cheap at garage sales or ebay!).

You besides real cool games like BLITZKRIEG....

I really do not know why companies now are not doing a distrobution for Linux. It is after all much cooler and stabler to run games on. With all the complex designs that go into designing a game for windows you would think that they would have a platform independent layer to go on any platform (linux or mac) and not just windows.

any suggestions on getting another DirectX/DirectSound game setup under Wine ?

thanks a bunch

Dreamweaver clone is a must or we need to convince Macromedia that it is worth their time to compile Dreamweaver, Flash, and Fireworks for Linux. Wine is making a real difference in many programs but Linux is (in my opinion) the greatest enviroment to design programs for the web. We need Dreamweaver!!! I am going to make that my mission. I am not smart enough to participate in the coding of a Dreamweaver clone but I'm sure there is other ways I can and would help such a project.

In Windows over the years I used Corel Wordperfect Suite, because I believed it was the best suite on that platform, and I used all programs within, specifically Quattro Pro, Wordperfect and Paradox. To my mind those were the best spreadsheet, database and word-processor for Windows.

I would love to have them running natively under Linux. Would I pay? Of course, to upgrade from Wordperfect 2002 Pro, which is the last version I had - I would willingly pay the equivalent of 50 USD.
