looks like a big thread....I'm curious if anybody has compiled all the requests into a simple big list (to ensure no duplicates or maybe to showcase priority based on number of requests?)

I see 200 some pages....I have used wine with some programs and they have worked for the most part.....some worked perfectly some have worked partially. Sometimes I have found alternative software that do the job for me in Linux.

Not yet.

Mikrotik RouterOS has a function where you can telnet to a MAC address of a network interface. It would be really handy if Linux had such a function. I know this is not a port from windows, but its still something that would be usefull if ported from ROS to Linux.

In order for me to go completely to Linux (OpenSuse), I would need Quicken also drivers for current day printers (Canon, Lenovo, HP). Would also like to have Snagit, a great capturing tool.

Would be willing to pay the same amount as is being charged for a MS product..

Thanks for asking....>

Nope, not really. New software comes out all the time, of course.

At this point there is nothing running on Windows that I need ported to Linux. And there are only a few specialty programs like AutoCAD that don't have good Linux equivalents. Crossover Office and Wine have made most of the rest runnable under Linux.

It's time to retire this thread!
Glad you've solved all your problems with software that runs in Linux. Not all of us have. Retire the thread? How about directing your attention elsewhere that might better serve your interests.

Please don't respond - the whole point is to keep the thread intact without a "war".

In my humble opinion (spelled out in real English), this thread is useful for as long as anyone is interested in it.

I remember the same sort of posts in the Linux Kernel bugzilla where some individuals wanted to close the thread because it had been unresolved for so long (5 years). THAT'S EXACTLY WHY WE KEEP IT OPEN, it was not resolved! The thread needed to be open until it was resolved.

If it's too much for you, please direct your attention elsewhere that might better serve your interests. We don't need a thread "closed" just because someone or other is bored.

Please don't respond - the whole point is to keep the thread intact without a "war".

Thank you....

Regarding SnagIt...there was a similar program I used that got the job done on linux. It was simple and easy to use. It's called Shutter.

Hope that helps some who are looking for a similar tool.
