It's hard to find an editor with less features in linux, in fact except for nano, and mcedit, of course). If linux has something, it is text editors.

I noticed but what can I say? once i find a program I love - functionality and GUI everything else is just ok.
I'm planning to try a lot of linux games and programs throughout this year, but I love how everything I wanted was in that program.
To be honest the thing I really liked was alphabeting text and the translations of the GUI.
I had a frenzy of installing packages in Debian but I found out I needed the space for video podcasts so now I install programs and games from time to time and try them.

Also CoffeeCup HTML Editor since it's a great WYSIWYG editor with a text editor and the people making it are great (reported a problem after a windows update and they got back to me pretty quickly and were nice - usually I'm just overlooked)

Do you use an exchange server, if you don't then you can probably use the thousands of email clients available on linux

I've been using this software called EditPlus. It's a wonderful and very powerful text editor. Unfortunately, I can't find anything similar to it for Linux.
(Anyone know of a Linux EditPlus clone - please do let me know!)

So, EditPlus is right on top of my wishlist of softwares I'd like to see on Linux.

Have you tried Audacious, or XMMS which are winamp clones that can even use the same skins as winamp

Game Maker

I want to see Mark Overmars's Game Maker ported. I've been wanting that for a long time. GM is such a nice, convenient game-programming tool with a very active community, but unfortunately, Overmars opted to make his tool proprietary, merging it with the company YoYo Games. Many users have tried using Wine to work with it, with mixed results. It works with some and not with others. But I'm a n00b who doesn't know how to port. >_<

The site is http://www.yoyogames.com
