Wow. I must say I like the "new Yahoo! Music Video Player BETA." It seems to work fine and I no longer get told that my system doesn't meet the minimum requirements. However it seems that the audio player still doesn't work. Interesting.

I like making and editing movies, so I would like the Windows MovieMaker or an equivalent piece of software to available on Linux. I have movies from the year 2000 in wmv format, and I am loath to have to remake them all

Well I found that in Macintosh and Windows systems, there were PS 2 and GameBoy Emulator, How about Linux? It would be nice if these emulators exist in Linux.

Well said, Windows Movie Maker is the best freeware (0 cost, NOT open-source because that is not important to me at all, I am no programmer) movie making software. Others freeware might not be able to produce this type of quality video or a buggy program. Or else u would need to pay US$100+ which can get you almost a Vista Home Basic or even Premium.Hence WMM is a need and MUST to Linux for it to be perfect.

Hmmm...let's see... I do music production and have a "bedroom studio" so I'd like to see Propellerheads Reason and FL Studio ported first. Ports of the VST Synths would be nice too: Arturia's moog Modular V2, Native Instruments Absynth 3, and Native Instruments FM7 (now FM8). I hear that you CAN run these apps in Wine however I have a 64 bit Etch system, and AFAIK there is no 64-bit version of Wine. Also, I've read some that it IS possible to get the VST stuff working under Linux, but it's a pain in the ass. Also Windows/Mac-based DAWs (digital audio workstation) such as Cubase or Protools would be great if they were ported as well.

Software to be ported to Linux

I would like to see Quicken, Terrain Navigator and RFCAD ported to Linux. Lots of others too, but these would make me switch desktops.

Re: Nero Under Linux

It might just be worth it to givr code weavers Cross Offivce (cxoffice) a try I have used it and give it my full backing and support as an alternative to Wine. You can aquire a trial version from the codeweavers web site and if ti works for you you can by the full basci addition for 36.99.

Their GUI is really nice. Unfortunately the *one* Windows app I want to use would not install, at least with CrossOver Mac. I've also tried it with WINE in Ubuntu and Zenwalk, and in ReactOS running in a virtual machine on the Mac. There's a lot that WINE won't do. That's why people want ports.

And I echo Piccolo_Pete about ProTools. Digidesign would not only have to port the software, but all the hardware interfaces would have to be made to work in Linux. I *really* doubt they would do it. It would be expensive for them, and I can't see enough Linux users paying for ProTools and DigiDesign hardware to make it worth their while. And why would they open their source code so the Linux community could do the porting? Then there would be a free version for everyone who wants to run Linux. The best we can do is get Ubuntu Studio, which is supposed to be released today...I'm going to go check right now...nope, still not out.

Well even with a pirated copy of ProTools (essentially a free copy), it's not much good without the hardware interfaces... And I've seen quite a few opensource projects that do the same thing that ProTools does, but again, it's all about the hardware at this point.

I'm sure Nero runs natively under Linux anyway. What's the point of trying to run something badly under an inclomlplete emulator when you could be running it perfectly well natively?

Yup. Nero does have a native Linux version and you can use the serial/activation number from your windows copy.

Another reason not to switch bites the dust.

Do give K3B a try if you haven't already. I used to be a Nero user when I used windows regularly, and haven't really missed it much. Both K3B and Nero are great pieces of software.
