Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'd like to see CDex, as well as the mainstream Windows games (with the soft-GPU capabilities intact). ...other than that, the only other title I want to see for Linux, the NetZero ZeroPort, is in the works for Linux. I also think Linux needs some decent (real) MP3 rippers and players. (that's the big reason I put CDex). I think the biggest porting challenge is the legal end.
...as far as Internet Explorer, I gotta shoot that down. The last thing we need in Linux is a Microsoft takeover, piracy of personnal information (like I caught XP doing) or a virus hole. That's exactly why I use Mozilla.

Like so many others, Dreamweaver and Photoshop. In my oppinion, The gimp doesnt cut it, Photoshop still rocks my world when it comes to grfx editing.
I would also love to have FlashFXP ported. There have been some attempts into making a FlashFXP clone, but none of which have been even close to successful. Of course, when it comes to sheer download, lftp does the job, but even there the queuing is a bitch and FlashFXP makes things easier...
Originally posted by dekket In case people didn't know, the url below lists a bunch of equivalents between linux and windows, I'm sure there are tons of ports that are unneeded because this list is BIG...
