Audible.com/.co.uk .aa files


I have managed to get everything working with linux except a wacom tablet (still needs some tweaking) and audible audio books. I would like a programme that could download the .aa audio format and then add to my Ipod with Gtkpod.

While it is not a stand alone application, I would like to see Kodak offer some drivers for their printer(s) for Linux.

The problem is, Kodak and any one else who create their own camera devices and their own drivers for them, always insist on presenting you with half a hard-drive's worth of, for want of a better word, crapware. Half baked, utterly horrible and often difficult to be rid of crapware.
It'd be like asking your package manager to retrieve a driver package that depends on all kinds of things in the repository you don't want/need (though given the quality of most Linux package repositories, at least then it wouldn't be a collection of half-baked software)

As a lazy web site designer the only program now stopping me going totally Linux, apart from the odd bit of testing, is Artisteer http://www.artisteer.com/ for creating Joomla and Wordpress style sheets.
Gimp, Inkscape and Netbeans easily exceed what I need them to do, but I just love Artisteer's visual style sheet program.

An advanced mobile phone service

I would be happy for the Nokia PC Suite (Ovi Suite) to linux. Yes, I can connect to the phone in mass storage mode (even through blooetooth, which once bordered on the miraculous), but I can not do a full backup (restoration), contacts, sms, etc.
There are several programs to support mobile phones (or advanced-called smartphones), but no, that would do everything completely (backup, restore, firmware upgrade, edit the address book).

Banking Program

I'd like to see Quicken ported to Linux. I know there are several very good open programs, however, the Quicken program is unique to many.
Thanks
Mike

Visual Pinball

Visual Pinball is the only reason I run Windows at all. If it were ported to Linux, I'd be completely Windows free!!!! The code has recently become open source, so it's possible if devs in the know want to tackle it.

Cheers.
I would like to have google talk and ipmsg(IP messenger like tools on linux). The environment in which I live is not suitable for having Internet. Sometimes there is very slow speed. So these softwares are definitely needed....

better rescue tools for windows----Have been trying to save some pics off a HD that XP lost and not having much luck. I imagine it is the ntfs giving me trouble--I love to see a microsoft junkies jaw drop when you use a small linux live cd to fix a mal-ware infection or recover a lost password on their box, especially if they ask questions---"Dude, what was the problem?"to which the answer "windows is the problem" makes 'em think

Basic hardware I use every day; harmony remote needs a program to work and does not on linux,also magic jack! Let us not forget garmin,I would like to update online.As in garmin nuvi or ledgend.I already own these,
but if I were able to use them without having two computer systems I would purchase these,price well as long as it was modest ok.
