I won't flame but instead i'll drop a bomb!: If "they" can't read, click, have an opinion, think, then there are schools for that!. Don't loose your (programming) time to explain to windows losers and mac junkies to GET A LIFE!. Cheers to others. Reine.

I beg to differ, it's is all about the bottom line. When Linux users reach market share that it becomes profitable to convert their software to Linux, they will. Most business decisions are not based on warm fuzzy feelings, but on profit and loss.

[QUOTE=jeremy;547083]This thread is for letting vendors know that there is interest in porting one of their programs to Linux. Let us know what programs you would like to see ported and why. Details such as how much you would be willing to pay may be helpful as well. If there is enough interest for certain programs I will even contact the vendor myself.

It would be great if the following would be ported to linux.

Quickbooks premier accountants edition 2006
Delorme maping s'ware

... that is an interesting part of the porting issue ...
... and that's why a lot of people like Linux ...
... the market share is already there ...
... but not on the users PC market ...

I guess the interface does mean something to some people.
Porting an interface is probably as important as porting a program, depending on the application, and they are quite different.

Yeah. Likely I already have an application that would open a Macrocrap WMV file, I just don't know what to tell Iceweasel to use.

a wmv file?, you would just open that up in any music player of your choice, provided that you have the codecs installed

Avid, or Sony Vegas, or Final Cut, or Adobe Premier pro would be nice.

What programs would you like to see ported to Linux?

H&R Block Tax Cut. It's the only application keeping me tied to XP. I suspect I'll try WINE or else file on line.

I would like to see the following Windows programs on Linux :

Number 1 wanted application on Linux:
STATBAR - This is my most fav tool in Windows 2000/2003/XP
Freeware tool , hasnt been updated in a while but still works great.
Information bar that gnome cant replicate in the same way
website :- http://www.statbar.nl/
The hard drive free space is one of the best parts of it:
http://www.statbar.nl/images/screenshot03.jpg

Number 2 wanted application on Linux:
A120 or Demon Tools - Commercial / Free - It allows mounting ISO's , Bin/Cue , MDF, NRG , etc with GUI INTERGRATION (well a120% does anyway).
Sure several half featured programs are available or a user could wade thou scripts but honeslty most gamers today arnt that tech savy with Linux , they want to install the program , right click on the image (.ISO/.CUE,MDF) and choose MOUNT ISO to Drive X)

Number 3 wanted aplpcation on Linux:
NLITE - Nlite is a freeware program that allows you to CONTROL what goes on the OS disc , you can REMOVE programs, you can ADD programs, you can customise it before it installs the way you want it .

eg
REMOVE every language you dont speak
Remove IE , Remove WMP , Remove OE
Remove un wanted services and bloat .

From what Ive been seeing with these AIO/get windows users distros even these need an nlite tool .
The amount of distros that install 10 p2p apps , 5 image browsers, 4 web browsers , 8 media playback programs .

others:


Netmeter - Freeware - Tool to monitor and record and chart network bandwidth - no EXTACT program exists on Linux yet.
Website :- http://www.metal-machine.de/readerror/


Winrar in Linux GUI - It exists in command line , needs a gui client
website - http://www.rarlab.com/
I scored a free winrar legit serial/key on one of their giveaway days, works great on my file server, on my gaming box I hardly use compression files so I stuck on tugzip on it (freeware) .

Better VNC client on Linux , Ive tired 10 so far and they all suck
most display the image wrong or the interface to connect sucks .
Tight VNC client (Windows) and Tight VNC server (Windows)
both work great. Website :- http://www.tightvnc.com/
(Yes I know Tight VNC Client 4 linux exists I use it out of the 10 that suck )

Speedfan - fan monitor and control tool and smart info, freeware tool , website :- http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
