Krusader needs kde-base packages, but runs in GNOME also without full KDE installed. There is also Gnome Commander for GNOME-only enviroment.

SportsCode GameBreaker would be great... I don't like to buy the Apple stuff, so it would be great to have it on linux as well.

I still wish Pokerstars would make a native Linux client; even though they do try and maintain compatibility with WINE, it still almost never turns out perfectly.

Dear Jeremy:
I should like to see MicroStation (CAD) ported to Linux, because I hate Windows and Bill Gates' commercial politics and I pretend not to use Windows based programs any more.
Regards
Alberto

@DrLove73: I tried gnome-commander and rsync. Their copy speed are 17~18 Mb/s, but TeraCopy's speed can be up to 28~30 Mb/s. Well...whatever...Windows is for gaming-only ). Linux is the best (but need to improve a lot).

Since File systems are totally different, it is very hard to do a proper test. Distro used with some other things can change results.

I've copied huge number of large and small files over NFS4 network file sharing protocol, and with 1Gbit network cards and SATA RAID1 (Mirroring) HDD's I can push ~280Mbps, ~85Mbps with 100MBit NIC's. CentOS 5.4 i386, AMD Phenom Quad + cheap ECS nVidia MB + 4GB RAM DDR2.

Have you tried the absolutely the same files? Any security feature selected? Have you calculated that Linux must copy security flags for each folder AND each file separately? It has much more control over files than any windows I have seen.

I never use Windows, and I use Mac for only one thing that I desperately want to see on Linux (although it is probably a very long shot): GarageBand!

Final Draft!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can't believe there's nothing similar for Linux!
It's even more critical in that Wine doesn't handle it.

Skype

Skype is the best and most secure system for video calls and meetings. It's very hard to install. I managed to install on Ubuntu 9.10 but video never worked. On 10.4. nothing works, Skype just vanish after start.

Probably the most GLARING area that Linux developers need to look at is in the area of TAX PREPARATION - have not found anyone that has ported programs such as TurboTax or TaxAct - only reason I still have Microshit as a partition is the fact that you can only run the programs within Microshit (i.e., either something within VirtualBox, Wine, or separate Microshit partition)

CADs of any sort, one of the more mainstream CADs, a non-commercial or freeware port of one of the IntelliCAD consortium based applications. It seems to me to be one of the most critical applications lacking from Linux platforms. So my vote goes for any AutoDesk/AutoCAD compatible CAD application.

The Linux based offerings are fairly flaky, unstable and usually have quite difficult interfaces. CADs are complex programs to learn, so being able to make use of existing skills would be a huge advantage.

Under Wine, many rendering and 3D features of Windows based solutions fail or are very slow. There is no replacement for a Linux native application.
