NBA live, Warcraft, almost all games..

Web designing tools..
why can't developers create a software that can work both linux and windows or even Mac.
although Mac have the advantage over linux because most of the software runs perfectly fine with them.

Question

I would like to see anything that would make any linux distribution easier to install along with the suit of programs which comes with the distribution.

That would bring linux out of the caves and really become a productive user OS.

Have you actually used Linux in the last 5 years?
Some of the installers out there (Ubuntu for example) are easier than Windows and the whole point of the term "distribution" is because it's a flavour of the Linux kernel plus a suit of programs.

The whole things about FSTab and file systems is confusing.

What would be wrong with just having drive C: D: E: etc..?

LMAO! That's hilarious, LauMars. Even I - as feeble minded as I am - was able to teach my cousin - even more feeble minded - how to use Synaptic in Ubuntu

I don't see why someone would need ms office, and I doubt many people would buy it for linux, when most linux distros already come with an office suite for free. Its kinda pointless to buy something that does the exact same as something for free. Most people that "need" ms office, don't really "need" it, because all they do is write letters and crap like that

Google Earth!

It would be fantastic to use it on a machine with a fast operating system for a change.
