While no software is perfect, I'd like to see more multimedia support for Linux especially the M$ formats. Its not like you can't just go ahead and add the repositories etc. It would be nice if it was all built in.
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.

Desktop Calendar.... (have already suggested it to the developer)
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.
ChromePlus just seems to be Chrome with some addons installed for you.
I'll stick to Firefox thanks.
I want to see Safari ported to Linux finally.
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.
