Photoshop

Crossover only supports up to version 7. I want the upcoming CS3 in rpm! As a professional photographer there is nothing like it.
Furthermore I would like to see these in rpm :

Photowatermark (or is there a Linux substitute?)
Adobe Lightroom

That's all

Linksys (http://www.linksys.com) market a USB Ethernet adapter which does work with Linux. I tested it with IPCop on an older laptop and a couple of newer desktop installations. The model number USB200M is listed as a current product on the Linksys webssite.

This thread

Many excellent suggestions have been posted regarding the porting of Windows-based software to Linux (or, GNU/Linux, as may be preferred).

In addition to making the posts here, why not also write or email polite notes to the software publishers of interest, asking them to consider ports of their most popular products ?

If the publishers are aware that a large-enough purchasing audience is interested in one or more particular products, that will do more to encourage them to port such products.

The one thing that we, as users and supporters of FLOSS, must be willing to tell the publishers, is "We are willing to pay for your product running under Linux."


Personally, I'd like to see the Forte' Agent newsreader / email client - with GPG support added - ported to Linux. Yes, I am willing to pay for it.

I'd also love to see Corel port WordPerfect to OS X and Linux. OpenOffice is very, very good, but it's not WordPerfect.

As others have suggested: Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, Apples' Aperture, are all excellent suggestions.


It's going to take more, I believe, than "We want! We want!". It is, in my opinion, going to require "If you produce it, we will buy!"

I've always found K3B to handle any CD / DVD recording function I have ever needed.

Ironically, it's one of the few Linux-based applications I'd like to see ported to Windows.

Otherwise, the best (in my opinion) Windows-based CD / DVD recording software is Nero:

http://ww2.nero.com/enu/index.html


Email or write to Ahead Software and ask that they consider porting a commercial version of Nero to Linux.

It will, by virtue of it being a commercial application, be encumbered with all the DRM restrictions required of commercial applications of that type.

Nero was ported to Linux. You had to buy the windows version to get a licence for Linux. The reviews were not good for it. I seams it was a bad port of it.

I've been searching all over the place for a program or script that offers all or most of the convenience that AutoUnpack provides. IMHO, absolutely indispensable for automated extraction of binaries downloaded from usenet. Hellanzb is the only program I know of that comes even close (e.g. if invoked like this "hellanzb -L -p <dir>"), but this just does not work as good (it only verifies and unpacks the first file, and skips everything else). Or does someone here know of an alternative?

I've no experience with Limewire (I'm not preaching - I've just not used it), but I have had years of experience with Nero.
Not once has any legitimate copy of Nero (OEM, retail, downloaded & purchased) ever been found to contain malware of any kind.*

I just installed Spybot (I'm beginning to recall why I despised and left Windows and went to Mac and Linux on my personal machines), ran a scan, installed the trial version of Nero 7, and ran another scan.

No changes to the system were reported and no reports of spyware or other malware were reported.

The enormous installed size of Nero (1231 meg) is, however, an entirely different issue.


* I do not work for, nor am I compensated by, Ahead Software or any of its trading partners.

Thank you for the reminder. I've not tried the Linux version, and quite likely will not do so.


Although I have absolutely no objective basis for this opinion, I suspect that the commercial licenses under which Nero is published will restrict the types of operations it can perform under Linux.
