If I am not mistaken RH includes in the CD collection if you buy CD's. Maybe that is what the OP means, he doesn't have to look around to find them.

Origin ! A scientific software for analyzing and visualizing date .

Maybe other guys have mentioned it , but I still would like to show my love with it ! It is simple ,easy to use and powerful . It can make some beautiful graphics than gnuplot .Maybe there are so many similar software in linux , but no one can be more integrated and powerful than it .

I will pay all I'd be willing to pay full price for it.

Blackberry Enterprise Server is absolutely essential. Some better version of MS Exchange other than what's already out there would also be good that at least supports existing standards.

Google makes use of Jabber, so any client that supports Jabber supports Google Talk. I use Kopete.

mplayer/mencoder. 'Nuff said.

Many people shy away from the Gimp as a viable replacement for Photoshop, because the different UI. Of coure Gimp doesn't have all the features of PS (this should be a no-brainer, really), but from my personal experience, most casual users really don't need most of the more advanced toys in Photoshop anyway. People who do are mostly employed in graphics, and will most likely work on Apple hardware anyway.

As for Dreamweaver, I've never really used it myself, as I feel there are far superior source-editors out there, and WYSIWYG editors never quite did it for me. I guess there's nvu, but the way I've got this figured is that people who use Dreamweaver need to use it either for some obscure extension or front page-like server integration (both of which I, again personally, find needlessly complicated).

Bottom line: if your biggest problem with the Gimp is UI, it'll probably still have all the features you need with different names. If you actually need the parts of Photoshop that make it cost $800, you'll know it.
If you use Dreamweaver only to edit source code, consider a more advanced editor.

Cheers.
I think it's about doing things faster and better instead of lazyness, and GIMP has no adjustment layers and all the stuff that Photoshop has. As I said before, the Adobe suite is my main reason for dualboot.

I don't know what your sources are. You obviously need to replace them.

Wine does a new release each two weeks approximately, and it currently has a much better support in which regards windows in general, and DirectX concretely (except for the anty copy bits). DirectX supports is improving every day.

WineX doesn't even exist any longer, and Cedega (it's successor, is developing at a shameful and very slow pace). Wine aims to fully support the windows and directx apis, while Cedega just aims to support the most voted game, period.

Note that freeware and "not-purchased" has nothing to do in any way with linux. You can buy linux, and freeware and open-source are two completely unrelated things.

You mean, and I agree, that I dream of the day that people go "woah what is Windows?" "Why would you even bother having a non Open Source operating system?" "It seems so stupid to give up control of your computer." "I don't know maybe I was just raised in the Open Source age."
