Audacity?

What about Krita? It seems to be more user-friendly than GIMP.

Quickbook

Quickbook, of course. Not only the Quickbook server, but clients too...

I think the best for GNU / Linux and open-source , freedomware movement is to create a MP3, MP4 as well as MP5 player that is also compatible with ogg format. I so far never seen 1 such product yet while it is going mobile. (Linux is going mobile right? Like 1 laptop per children --- which has a contaminated option of XP demand by some other nation as well as UMPC etc)

PS: Maybe it can renamed as ogg player. Best is that handphones can play ogg format. (Sure thing is mp3 --- wma is not supported in some phones.)

Several dozen multi-format players already exist; at least just several dozen. Banshee being the premiere example.

I don't understand what "going mobile" means. Linux works on a wide variety of mobile platforms from laptops to phones and from a Linux desktop there are multiple supported mobile music devices from the iPod to lesser devices.

The OLPC (one laptop per child) is really a completely irrelevant part of the Linux space; I'd be surprised if they accounted for, or will ever account for, more than 0.01% of Linux end-users. OLPC is about polotics, not technology, anyway.

More to the "point..!"

Surely it;s nice to have a favorite wordprocessor or editor on board, but I'm still hoping for an answer for when/if support for the Elantech touchpad is going to be in the new kernel, especially for the Debian/Ubuntu family. At this point it takes me three Euro coins to cover the touchpad not to have the cursor pull my focus off in who-knows-what direction, and I'm sure I'm not the only one trying to use a laptop with an un-cooperative t-pad. Any response?

thx,

Robert

AFAIK, every Linux based player supports OGG, including the Android and the Nokia 8xx series. If the player isn't Linux based it is out of the scope of "software that should be ported to Linux". A player is hardware anyway, not software.

My bad. Although that is right. (Nokia 8x series are good, not as N series that high end also. What I try to mean is that some are not Linux based and therefore no OGG support. Anyway this mine intital post should be on somewhere else. My bad.)

My bad. The players do not mean software players but hardware player. Mine phone (And friends / relatives) has no OGG support. I think that is because they are not Linux based.


Desktop / Laptops are good example. However, I would like to convert them (my audios) into ogg but my mp3 player does not seemed to support (Nothing is mentioned on OGG but mp3 and wma )

Such hardware support Ogg is exist as someone posted below. But the choice can be more. (Why you vendor not using Linux for all handphones, mp3 players!)

I would love to see the source code added to every distro. The only distro that seems to do that is redhat.

All distros according to the GPL has to release their sources to F/OSS programs
