No. I haven't yet. But since the software exists for many years and I have never seen Linux version I guess there must be some reasons.

The Print Shop - Or a least some Linux native greeting card program! This is the one application that keeps that one last Windows box.

Finale - Works mostly under wine, but a native app would be nice. Rosegarden just doesn't cut it.

ExpressPCB - This also works mostly under wine. There are some linux apps that will do most of this, but either they aren't as full featured or they are difficult to use

I've found that Avidemux does pretty much the same as VirtualDub and is as easy to use.

Thumbs up What programs would you like to see ported to Linux?

I would be a total Linux user If AutoCad was ported to Linux.I am waiting for Linux to capture enough market share with business to entice AutoCad to port to Linux. It should not be much of a stretch as they use to port to Unix.

I think rich user experience is not making linux famous, we need to bring the linux to general public for them it has to come from the entertainment side.

I think these days in every home a computer is used, but everyone is interested to use Windows pirated version just because of the easy to use and outside everyone is experiencing. So what i want to say is we need

a free media player which will play all the files and entertainment stuff like showing the pictures.

And also when loading the Linux into the system we need more memory rather than windows and also the mouse movement is not that much free on the desktop.

so in this way some more work we need, and bring the os into the general public so that no one can stop our linux to get rid of all.

there are lots of free media players that play all the files, if you have codecs installed, which most distribution can't have installed by default because of various patents.
I don't understand your last statement because most linux distributions use alot less memory then windows vista. I also don't understand your statement about the mouse movement

Question cardfile

I haven't gone through all the >200 pages here, but I would like to have cardfile ported. It comes from MS 95 and is a very simple ans SMALL (<40kB) and uh well ...is a cardfile. It even can make phone calls. It works awkward under wine. Reverse engeneering??
