This is the purpose of Evolution, which is practically a drop in replacement for Outlook, and it is compatible with Exchange.

Editplus lets me access my files over ftp from other servers. Plus, its got functionalities I've only seen in advanced IDE's like Eclipse. Stuff like - Scan through entire set of open files for a keyword, using a macro, repeating keystroke actions, etc.


As for XMMS - it doesn't have Global Hotkey support. I just looooooooooove that functionality on Winamp. Lets me control the application by using the keyboard and not having to change focus to the music player.

Kate and write can do this. Additionally, any command line editor that can run on a shell can be used in conjunction with ssh to access those files. The editor needs to be installed in the server side in this second case, though.

You mean like vim, emacs and lots of others advanced linux editors, even command lines ones. They both can do that and much more. And even sed and awk can do that as interactive editors, though that's less intuitive.

Really, I have noticed that a lot of people are tied to their windows editor even when they migrate. It might be a bit tedious when starting, but there are native solutions that are far superior, and are available everywhere and under any OS. So, migrating is really worth the hassle.

You really should consider using any other thing. But if you really want xmms, there are lots of ways to set global keys at least for some functions. XMMS for sure do not support them, but you can use things like khotkeys. You can also use xmms directly and bind it to key combos in your window manager, like for example bind win+p to "xmms -p", see xmms --help or man xmms for all the options.

I also know that there are external tools to control xmms from command line (don't remember how they are called though). Whichever of these tools can be used on whichever WM to control XMMS using key combos without having xmms focused.

Sorry for the offtopic, however I thought that some of this info might be useful for the previous poster.

This one is easy:

1. Edit Plus
2. SQLYog
3. Quick Books

I think a lot of SOHO type businesses would take a look at Linux if Intuit would ever port Quick Books. Where I work we have no real love for XP but the Quick Books issue is a deal breaker for migrating to Linux.

Nomachine's NX I think would be a fantastic edition. It's a remote desktop application that can run cross-platform. I use it all the time to get to my Ubuntu desktop from both my Linux and Mac laptops. Very clean, easy and secure.

chess

Chessbase is the only great application that i miss from M$ windows. I haven't yet found an open source chess database application with such kind of potential.

You don't really need Alcohol 120% because its main function is to mount .iso files, which linux can do without any extra tools

Yes, but I'm running 64-bit Debian Linux, so I'm flat out of luck when it comes to an Adobe Flash plugin, or Chrome, or Firefox, NONE of which care to get into the 21st century.

I take it you are running pure 64-bit?

you can use chroot to run your web browser or you can install 32bit libs from repo

there are ways of getting flash to work but it should be easer

you are 100% right they need to get with the game

may want to look into nspluginwrapper
