sonyerricson w700i accompining software

Hi,

My mobile is sonyerricson w700i. They provide the software for pc to mobile data transfer. There is lots of cool stuff included with the cd like themes, screensaver & icons , etc. The defaults that comes with the phone is not so good looking. The software contains lot more options. I would like to see that ported.

gps nav software with routing capability.

Running Delorme Street Atlas is now the ONLY thing left keeping me dual-booting my laptop.
Everything else, including wireless networking is now flawless for me.

This has been posted dozens of times before, but what I'd really like to see on Linux, would be some of the support OS X's been getting (MSOffice, Adobes tools etc.). I love OpenOffice, and wouldn't trade it for MSOffice for anything, but would Office be availabe on Linux, many a company would cladly migrate over to a Linux distro. Also Adobe has been supporting Windows for a long time now, I think it's about time they port their software to linux. I'd love to be able to run InDesign from Gnome, and not have to dual boot Windows just to run design and music software that Wine can't perform well with...

Which Adobe software are you referring to? Both Adobe Reader and Flash Player are Adobe products, and have been available for Linux for as long as I can remember.

Smile Sliverlight

Personally,I would like Sliverlight from Microsoft to be ported into Linux because firstly, it is used in Macs too, who is an Unix varient.
Secondly,both Windows and Macs Firefox 1.5 AND Firefox 2 are supported starting from Windows XP and Mac OS 10.4.8+ regardless of PowerPC (Only current version , Sliverlight 1.0 NOT the 1.1 release,that is in beta testing.) or Intel-based (Both 1.0 and beta 1.1). I do not understand why an open-source program like firefox supports sliverlight in only Win and Mac but not in Linux, where the programming languaged used is C# that I heard which is somehow supported in MAc and Linux OS.
(Alternatively,Programmers can try DotGNU instead,who is a replacement of .NET framework.This information comes from Wikipedia.)
Therefore, it is fair to ALL linux user with a Linux version of sliverlight as I believe it CAN be fully supported as well as people spend money to bild/buy a PC is to have a multimedia experience that what sliverlight is doing. (The next Gen of multimedia experience.)

Now I would like to have a Linux version of the Rosetta Stone (language learning) and the Verizon Wireless Access Manager. I was able to get my USB720 working on Linux (as you can see!), but no manager. I tried to install the Rosetta Stone system using WINE, but that did not work.

software programs wanted in Linux

Dear sir,
I would like to have following software in Linux:
1)Audio data acquisition software with the following specifications:
a)Uninterrupted software settable variable sampling frequency (16KHz-48KHz)16 bit stereo digitisation.
b)unlimited (limited only by the capacity of Hard Disk)capacity). Maximum signal length of 90 minutes ( file capacity = 90 x 60 x 2 x 44.1 x 1000 x 16 bits).
c)Direct writing to Hard Disk.
d)Format of the digitised data : WAVE, automatically done by the software.
2) A program to automatically extract the actual samples from the wave files and automatically separating the left and right channels without the Wave header for further processing. And another program to reinsert the Wave header and combining the two channels.
3)Fortran 77 compiler with a very good math library. I don't need C. Fortran 77 is enough for this purpose. g77 banks on gcc. Many years back I have used Fortran77 for speech processing on CDC 3600, CDC CYBER 60 bit and DEC10 Mainframes.
Interestingly SUN Ultra Sparc workstations had a built in data acquisition software.
I am interested in archival of North Indian Classical Music - both Vocal and Instrumental. I have about 100 stereo music cassettes.
My PC system configuration is:
Intel Pentium III coppermine 1GHz CPU; WINOWS 98SE on 40GB HDD; Open SUSE 10.2 linux on another 40GB HDD; SONY CRX230E CD writer; Samsung CD ROM drive; Creative Labs' SOUND BLASTER Live!Value sound card.
As to bye the software I can pay about Indian Rupees FOUR THOUSAND by Banker's cheque here in India. Free FORTRAN compiler should be available on Linux ( with its own maths and other libraries not dependent on C). In fact Creative labs have a very good data acquisition software for my WINDOWS 98 O.S.
With best regards
R.S.Sardesai
