Majicjack...their website states that they are coming out with a Linux install, but they do not reply to questions regarding when exactly.

HTML Kit

Or 'HTMLtools', I would pay for it if it was 100%, I do a lot of HTML for work and love this program so much that it overrides my Windows phobia when working at home and I have to use it. What I love is the instant update of the template so that I don't have to keep saving and then viewing in a browser as I did with Emacs and Linux.
Correct me if I'm wrong (I would love you to) but I don't think anything under Linux does this, please don't mention WYSIWYG editors, I hate them and will only ever hand code.

RMclock was the last program I used to miss before switching from Windows, I needed it so badly to undervolt and thereby cool down my Core 2 Duo laptop, that I didn't get started with Linux until I changed to an EEE PC. With standard CPU voltage settings on my previous laptop, my CPU would overheat from the gnome opengl screensavers and crash Linux. :P

I know it's possible to change cpu voltage settings under Linux, but I couldn't find anything with simple and reassuring instructions when googling and thus didn't dare to start messing with such a thing as a complete Linux newbie.

Under BSD you use powerd to change the clock speed and cool down a laptop (or extend battery life). Under Linux you use CPUSpeed.

I have started using linux (fedora and Rhel ) and its great ...even was able to install and use my tataindicom cusb modem on it . I was successfull in installing the mysql server but am not able to find a corresponding good GUI (open
source). Navicat says there is a community version but I am unable to get that
link. Can someone let me know the opensource links for either navicat or sqlyog or anyother mysql gui for linux.
It would be great to have this gui software in Linux as opensource if possible.

I would certainly want to see Steam, Half-Life 2, and other Steam games ported to Linux, as well as the dedicated server for Garry's Mod.

I guess it depends on your idea of 'good', but there is PHPMyAdmin (easy to get by just installing XAMPP) there is also MySQL Admin (by MySQL)... quite a few more as well.

As far as I know you can run all Steam games with Wine. Maybe you need some additional software like PlayOnLinux, but I think it already works.

I felt of course frustrated. Almost every application in Windows was replaced by an excelent linux tool, with the exception of CAD software...
I think that if this application would exist, a great number of bussiness boxes were running a beautiful Linux distro. It's a great deal that I hope some day a software corporation will take.
Here is a collection of CAD software for Linux. Some free and some not so free.

Most of the stuff AVS media do and I've already got an Endless license that I paid for(which is unusual for me) Its nice to find software that works.

A decent GPS enabled map/routing software. I'm a trucker, so Copilot Truck 11 from PCMiler would be ideal. I would be willing to buy and use the windows version except they don't make it for 64-bit machines! Barring PCMiler, the DeLorme Street Atlas or MS S & T. Along that same line, a program to do Driver Logs like "Driver Daily Log" would be nice.

Also I tried GnuCash on Fedora a few years ago. Didn't like it. It had basic problems (like whole modules not working) and p-poor docs and when I asked about it (politely!) the developer gods were real a**holes.

And of course, it would be nice if the hardware would work with Linux. Until then, Win 7 is pretty decent.

Thnx.

I have had this exact problem on several apps - it's amazing how many projects out there have attitudes like this.

Don't develop it if you're not going to support it, guys.
