To say this once more after all number of times said:

Linux distributions, most of them, are abiding by the License Agreements of packages and technologies involved. They do not wish to be sued because of the patent and license violations. That is THE ONLY reason why certain technologies are not part of the distributions, but only as additional third party resources.

ChromePlus just seems to be Chrome with some addons installed for you.
Big whoop.
I'll stick to Firefox thanks.
I want to see Safari ported to Linux finally.

Quicken Premier.....
Desktop Calendar.... (have already suggested it to the developer)
Lotus SmartSuite...
Snagit..

Quicken currently seems to be the only program that is needed for me to turn off Windows completely. I am trying GnuCash, but, it is not as user friendly especially for those who need just a simple accounting program. However, I am trying. What is nice about GnuCash is that it has a Windows version as well as a Linux version.

Thanks for LinuxQuestions and jeremy....

Also, I really like OpenSuse a great distro..

Depends on Mobile phone, but Linux has OBEX protocol, supports Bluetooth, and you should check Wammu (Gammu)

Dragon Naturally Speaking may have been mentioned before in this thread, but I'd like to buy a native Linux version.

Another one. Desktop Earth. Not the Google Earth clone, the one that gives you a real-time desktop wallpaper complete with cloud cover and everything. xearth just doesn't seem to come close enough.

Oh, so would I! I'm very frustrated at the lack of such software.

I'd like to have Pinnacle TV stick programs so I could just download a .deb or apt-get it. I've been trying to get this to work for a month wih no success, very frustrating.

Well, this is not "just" some simple addons IMHO. Those features are really my favorite features can save 30% of my time when surfing the internet. I like mouse gesture, super drag, advertisement blocking, and privacy protection. There are more, but I only use these the most. If a browser has no these functionalities, I won't use it at all.

Yeah - but it seems fairly silly to me to create an entirely new browser based of Google Chrome, which is based of Chromium, when you can add each of those addons to the default Chromium or Google Chrome, and achieve the same effect without some 3rd party doing who knows what in between.
