Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Paltalk, messenger programs that can actually handle voice chat rooms instead of all the dozens of crippled messenger programs available for linux....
GUIs for popular classic computer and console emulators instead of them all using a cli interface that require typing two rows of commands EVERY TIME to get the emulator to load the game/file and options that I want.
Cubase, Pro Tools, the ability to use VST's and VST Instruments, and the ability to use RTAS effects.
Photoshop (or at least give the gimp some more options like replace color and selective color).
AutoHotKey is great in Windows. We definitely need something like it for Linux. I want to switch to Linux totally but an old dog doesn't learn new tricks easily. Furthermore my productivity depends on being able to use the same keyboard layout in all my programs. Using AutoHotKey I can do that in Windows.
So far I have found nothing that enables me to do the same in Linux.
I need to be able to define multiple key sequences (like in many editors, e.g. Ctrl+k Ctrl+x)to act like a single key. For example I want to define "Ctrl+k Ctrl+x" to act like "Alt+f4".
Is there anything out there that will do this? Beter yet, is there anything like AutoHotKey?
Has anyone mentioned VirtualDub, and some of its modified versions, VirtualDubMod and NanDub - Excellecnt little AVI editing applications - I've not found a Linux video file editing app to live up to them yet.
Have you tried Avidemux? It has similar functality for the work I've done with video.
Application I really woud like to see ported is Xnews, for NNTP news reading. It is free from newsguy.com, written by Luu Tran (in Delphi). It seems like a very real possibility to get it for Linux. Some folks are using wine to run it but thats not good enough solution.
I whole heartedly second that - an excellent newsreader.
