linux-hawk, work on your spelling, alot. Also I don't see why working on mac and windows platforms would make a difference because Firefox and Opera work on Mac and Windows as well. I don't see how Safari has any more potential then Firefox or Opera

There are some video editors, such as Avidemux and Cinelerra, that work with Linux. Try one of those.

I think for as long as I've been away from MS, I only miss 3 things...

Premiere Elements

Sims 2

MSTS...sure miss my trains

It's not like I can't do without them, and I've already replaced one of them. The Gimp works better for me.

Deluge is probably what you want, you can also run utorrent in wine pretty good

multimedia

I would like to see better versions of flash in Linux. That way, fox news videos, yahoo music videos and cnn videos would all work with Linux. For whatever reason, they don't with Fedora 8.


.swf files seem to be the problem.

flash player 9 works in linux just fine. I checked all the sites you mentioned and all video work here. As an added plus
is I'm on a 64bit machine.

There's dozens of torrent clients for Linux.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_client
^ take a look and try a few.

Personally, I used to run Azureus. These days I have a dedicated server running a PHP bit-torrent client (TorrentVolve) which I can remotely connect from home or work via the usual HTTP port.

Flash

For some reasons, flash is just touch and go with Linux. As are some other applications. Fox News Video and music.yahoo.com work with Mepis but not Fedora 7 or 8. Youtube always works. Daily motion can use Firefox download helper successfully but not play with Fedora 8. It works just fine with Mepis. On the other hand, Kaffeine works better in Fedora 8 then under Mepis and Mplayer works great with a terminal under Fedora 8 while under Mepis it makes no difference. Also, some of these sites tell me to install the latest version of Flash even though I already have done so.

The firefox extension download helper works great. Once you download stuff, it nearly always works.

Go figure...

I would like to see a good streaming video program ported to Linux that plays anything, even region free movies all in one application. Mplayer, however, does come real close.
