Will be BRL-CAD the CAD solution for Linux users?

<edit> Here's a comparison. Might want to try some of them, see what you think.
I haven't supported CAD users in... well, let's just say a long time

I found this article in Spanish "¿Será brl-CAD la solución CAD para los linuxeros?" (Will be BRL-CAD the CAD solution for Linux users?, URL=http://www.puntogeek.com/2009/10/01/%C2%BFsera-brl-cad-la-solucion-cad-para-los-linuxeros/ ).

"...BRL-CAD is a powerful cross-platform open source solid modeling system that includes interactive geometry editing, high-performance ray-tracing for rendering and geometric analysis, image and signal-processing tools, a system performance analysis benchmark suite, libraries for robust geometric representation, with more than 20 years of active development..."

Also, you can see this: http://linuxappfinder.com/graphics/cad

I hope this help you.

I just did mine online. TaxAct.com. I used to download the software but then I said why clutter up my hard drive. Saved the return as a PDF.

I'd Like to See TMPGEnc For Linux

I used TMPGEnc a short while with Windows XP. it's great for editing home recordings. It's real precise in cutting out unwanted (commercials) footage from a video file; and then burning to DVD. I haven't found a good equivalent program in Linux yet! The ideal price for it would be "Free"; but I'd expect to pay around $30-$50.00.

Hi, you'all!
I am Ton and have a general interest in Linux.
I am using OpenOffice and get along with it great. I also have installed Ubunto on one of my laptops and am beginning to enjoy it.
I'm also the editor of the bi-monthly newletter for our Kerrville, TX computer club members and would like to expose them to Linux. All are Windows users and, during our SIGS, I have made efforts to get them to shift to OpenOffice with minimal success. Any suggestions for this?

I'm also described to the well-known Linux magazine and would like some help in getting to know how to go about starting with Linux; the magazine is great and full of code of which I don't know the beginnings.

Thanks - see you guys/gals around.

Ton

There are lots of web editing tools in Linux: bluefish, screem, etc.
IDEs like NetBeans, Eclipse, Quanta Plus, symfony, etc.
Who needs stinkin' Dreamweaver?
It uploads corrupt files too.
The only tool that would be worthwhile porting is Flash.
F4L is pathetic.
The Ming library is a good start but not yet a tool.

I hate people who complain about things but arent willing to figure out a fix. Oh wow, you guys figured out how to send an email to someone telling them what SOFTWARE you want. Im not sure but one of the reasons of linux was to be diffrent. Its a smarter os and you still wanna use some store bought, spoon feed, canned software from the linux rejects. Where do you think the people who couldnt handle linux went, to microsoft . They where to scared. I am willing to help anyone , anytime , anyday , anywhere port software that is like the sh*t you used to use on your Wincrap pc. If someone wants to make some money, email me and Ill give a hand.
Then come up with a way to run Big Fish Games on Ubuntu without using wine or virtual etc. I would pay for that!

And do you wonder why people aren't flocking to Linux? Are you a Linux snob or what? The best you can come up with is to put down someone else. Shame. Put your energy into coming up with a solution and you would be a hero instead of the bitter person who likes nothing better than to insult others.

-------------------
There are just so many lemmings who have to have things "compatible with Microsoft" or they're no good. They don't understand the concept of non-proprietary, open standards, and just love to go down to Best Buy and pay hundreds of dollars for software. (This would be OK if what they were buying was better and you had a choice of vendors.)

Forget about code, that scares people. Show them how easy it is to install Mint. Explain to them that it combines the advantages of Apple operating systems with cheap PC hardware, at low cost.


Goed geluk!
