Its not as hard as it looks. It only took a couple of days to learn the basics for me. LaTex is defiently worth some effort, I have actually had people tell me that my papers look professional when I used it.

Thank you Ole Juul,

Yes I use pure dos. All I do to transfer files between my dos machines is use interlnk.exe & it's companion program intersvr.exe and connect 2 computers via either parallel cable or serial cable to transfer. Usually, "xcopy f: n: /a/s/m". What I'm doing is backing up in case the source machine crashes.

I'm happy to know there is a simple way to transfer files between dos and linux machines. I printed your info and will look in to FTP. At this point, I don't have a clue, but I'll try to figure it out. Thanks again. My address is daniel at torchlake dot com.

Band In A Box 2009--or a clone thereof. It's the ONLY thing that keeps my other computer tied to Redmond. Period. Unfortunately, it's not on any other xnix platform, and it will probably never happen, since it's a proprietary program, and they will not be releasing source code. Too bad there isn't some sort of a similar effort available on Linux.

Some of the older versions of BIAB will run (sort of) under Wine, but when you start trying to run it in record mode, latency is an awful problem. Any sort of similar program would certainly be a MAJOR project. I don't think it will ever happen, but....hey....you asked ; )

Did you try using jack and a real time kernel (or at least a latest 2.6 kernel compiled with a 1000hz clock)?

Wine supports jack, and jack can be configured to work with low latency as long as your kernel has the right support into place.

Thanks for the reply i92guboj. Yeah, I've tried to use wineasio, and even that is tricky, and it really underperforms. Additionally, I've not been able to make the user interface look right no matter what I do, and that was on the previous version of BIAB: 2008.5. I've been using the program since the late 1980's and have renewed every year but one (2006--I didn't like the changes that year), but I have this machine on OpenSuse 11.0, and I wish there was a jumping off point to go strictly with this version of Linux but since I use that program for 90% of what I do on a computer, I'm tied to it, and Windoze on the other one. However, I haven't had that Redmond box on the internet for six months now (virus worries and constant neccesity of defragging). This particular program is a "Swiss Army knife" of audio software, and is a big resource hog, eg., the latest edition to it needs about 3-4 DVDs for a full install!!! And I would pay their full retail price for the upgrade to Linux if they wrote it--$129 USD

There's a GNU project called "PSPP" (Inverse of SPSS) that's supposed to be a SPSS "clone". It even supports SPSS files.

I haven't tried it yet. Let me know what you think.

MS Office 2007. That's one item I would love to see a Linux port for. I know there is always Open Office that you can use. But, seriously, Open Office is no match for the UI and user friendliness of MS Office 2007.
(I hate to say it - but I do have to call a spade a spade!)

Software

Hi I'm new to this forum and new to Linux, so please be patient with my inexperience. I would suggest iTunes, if someone could pry open Apple's restrictive policies. It is very popular and would open up Apple products for the Linux OS. Also, I am an amateur photographer and use Canon products. Zoombrowser EX, Picture Style Editor and EOS Utilities would be helpful as Canon has nothing for Linux. If these exist, please let me know where. Thanks.

NewsLeecher

Greetings,
The big thing I'm missing from Windows is NEWSLEECHER. It has a schedule that starts downloads at a set time, which is important for us Hughsnet sat internet users. We have to do our downloading in the middle of the night.
Everything else about this Debian installation is perfect. Linux partition 100% but I could really use Newsleecher.
Thanks

That post you're replying to was made in 2003, so it's a bit outdated
SPSS has since been ported to GNU/Linux, see system requirements
Maybe they read this thread?

Install it through your package manager?
