The length of this thread would make this a daunting task, but it would be intereting to see a listing of all the software mentioned in this thread, and which ones have subsequently been ported to Linux by their developers.

I use online banking and my bank only works with Quicken. That is, I can download my bank statement directly into Quicken and compare each entry with the receipts in my wallet. I don't even bother with a paper check register any more. Quicken is the only reason I still have XP on my computer.

I'd love to reach into my PC and rip XP out with my bare hands and stomp on it. But I need to balance my checkbook.

I thought one of the linux financial programs like gnucash or whatever the KDE one is reads Quicken. Sure there isn't OSS capable of reading the format?

Gnucash can read QIF (Quicken's format): http://www.gnucash.org/docs/v1.6/C/t3948.html

Give it a go and let us know what you think of it!

I would love to see a driver and application (similar to the Windows app) for a TI calculator (especially TI-84 Plus Silver Edition).
I would also love to see a driver for a Colby Mp3 player. On a Windows 98SE machine, you can't install the driver they supposedly made for SE.

That may have worked with my old bank. With that one I could go to the bottom of my online checking account, choose a format - Quicken, Money, or Excel, and download a file.

My new bank, PNC, works differently. There is no way to download the statement from the web site. Instead they offer a service through Quicken. Quicken fetches the statement, some how, and downloads it. There is no file to feed to GnuCash. In fact, I was all set to try gnucash, but my old bank shut down.

I like PNC bank too much to switch.

USB password manager

In Windows, 'Pass2go' (USB release of RoboForm) is the best, most popular software pkg. I use it on a deadicated USB drive for work and a second USB/license for personal accounts. The USB version gives me portability and keeps my sensitive information private by simply unplugging the USB drive.

I think Windows Media Player would be a good program to have ported to Linux considering most of Linux's media players need the Win32 codecs installed anyway. That would save a lot of people time. Maybe that will happen when Micro$oft buys Novell and then eventually makes a Linux distro of their own.

I don't know is WMP was already on this list since there are 177 pages of this shat, and I'm not searching them all.

That will never happen except in the new Microvell hybrid Linux because legally to use the win32 codecs you have to own a legal copy of Microsoft Windows. That is why very few distributions come with them pre-installed. So to just start giving away free copies of Windows Media Player would be violating their own copyrights.

How can anyone violate their own copyright?

If they own the copyright, then they have the right to copy it. That's what owning the copyright means!

I didn't mean that they "couldn't" I'm just saying that it "wouldn't" because they're so stuck on "intellectual property" and making sure that nobody except them or people using their software can use their file formats to share data with other users. I mean heck Microsoft Office document formats are still closed, OpenOffice and things only figured them out through reverse engineering, anyway, I'm getting off topic.
