Well, I had thought vsuala studios would be good for linux. Then I realized that it is windows programming you do on it. Not useful in Linux. And also the new ones use the dot net framework.

For those who pine for a MS Visual.NET Studio-like environment, check out MonoDevelop.

It might be worth to check out okular.

I have no idea what's so special about VS. There are LOTS of similar IDEs for linux, like monodevelop, anjuta, kdevelop and many others that I don't know of probably.

Ge'ez!
First rude reply I have gotten
Anyway, the thread is about what programs we would LIKE to see ported, not what we think is going to get ported.
You are right with the chance of halo and iTunes being ported is slim, however the thread is not about what has the greatest chance.
I need an application to sync my ipodtouch with Linux which songbird and rhythmbox don't support.

Pony up? Why do I have to buy a xbox when I can just play it on my computer???


Sorry if I would have liked halo and itunes to be ported to linux
But I was just answering the question that is the thread title.

visual studio is pretty good but not the be all and end all
I had a breif look at monodevelop, I think I will download and try it. I use code::blocks and it is good

Quicken, Quicken, Quicken & Quicken.

I'd pay as much as they charge for their Microsoft or Apple software, providing a Linux version had the same features and timely updates.

iTunes

iTunes, and not because I use it. In fact, I absolutely hate it and I've only used it once or twice in my life (before I made a 100% conversion to Linux). But I know for a fact that it's an app like iTunes which serves as the only thing preventing a lot of people from moving to Linux. Getting iTunes ported to Linux would mean "official" iPod support and access to the iTunes store, and this might help sway a lot of people to move out of Windows to Linux. Somehow, I doubt that a lot of Mac users would be convinced to switch, for some reason.

Of course, I know that this will most likely never happen, but I suppose we all can dream.

Yes, I know I can use it in virtualbox, and have done so, but it would still be nice to have a dedicated linux version.

Not sure if this counts, but the Software Acceleration drivers for nVidia and ATI cards. It's nice to have hardware acceleration, but programs like nVidia's Forceware make games run so much faster on my Windows installations than any of the Linux distros, and it would help make Flash games work faster as well.

There we go. nVidia's Forceware. I want to get that, along with the drivers ported to Linux.

I use a genealogy program called GRAMPS, which works on Linux. I don't know if it has all the same functionality, but give it a try.

iTunes. I am currently running it on WinXP with Virtualbox. While it generally works, I have to use a native Windows machine to update the iPhone firmware. Then I can sync it again on my Linux/Vbox/Windows machine to put everything back.
