Fair enough. I completely agree with your vector graphics thing though. I heard that the GIMP was planning to implement support soon, so that would be great when it happens.

Hey Guys.

Cyberlink PowerDVD.
An Official version of ICQ
Macromedia Dreamweaver MX

Well Linux comes with everything else, so if these programs get ported. I'll die a happy man.

Thanks Guys

I've used sodipodi. It's good and getting better, but it's not quite as mature as the tools that are standard in the graphics industry. The same goes for OpenOffice.org Draw: it's good, but it's not quite good enough for Linux to stand it's ground against MacOS in the graphics industry.

i would like to see many games ported to linux so that i do not have to use an emulator and hope that the games are supported through that. also, dreamweaver would be great to see ported because of the flash editing parts of it. kazaa or some other sharing software would be useful too... because as far as i know, there is no cross-platform file sharing software and that makes it difficult for *nix and 'doze users to share files.

Wink E-Mail Server in one package

I spent several days just recently to set up a SOHO linux server with mail server. All it had to do was to dial up an ISP, check POP3 with Alisases and distribute to local accounts. Before, i used a tiny program called FTGate which toke me just about 10 minutes to set up.

thepuppet: get giFT with the FT plugin. It works a treat and allows you access to the whole Kazaa network. Apollon in KDE is a great frontend, but there are others.

3D studio max would be a good one, and quicken would also be good - then my dad could switch over too.
