not so much a ported program but an enhancement
3d acceleration in qemu so that games and program will generaly run much faster
maybe that is an impossible feat though?
be nice though direct X could be emulated and opengl could probably be passed through the program direct to graphics card use of specilised drivers

The problem with qemu is that it'd have to be compiled to support various graphics cards, and while it's possible, I think that they're more focses on getting qemu to run faster on the whole, whereas they assume you're not dumb enough to try to play games using qemu. If you want that kind of support, perhaps you should look at a product called "netraverse win4lin." Moreover... It hs been My experience that I rarely do anything else when I'm playing a game; thus, a dual-boot scenario might be your best bet. There's also Transgamin cedega designed to playing widows games, in linux, at native speeds. It works pretty good and is a subscribtion so tthat you can get updates as new games come out, and support is developed for them.

As in the driver.

Just scratch that to drivers that uses all the advantages of the newest graphic cards.

the programs i would like to see ported most are probably daemon tools, and google's desktop search (or even better apple's spotlight, but thats not going to happen). as both of these applications are free for windows i would not like to pay any money for them.

Nothing like deamon tools will ever be ported as there is a kernel-level replacement that allows you to specify a file as a block device (physical device) and then mount it.

man losetup
man cloop
man mount
