Two programs I'd like to see ported to Linux:

1. KeePass [http://sourceforge.net/projects/keepass/]
I have KeePassX, but its feature set is lagging somewhat behind KeePass. I'd like to see more developers contribute time to the KeePassX project so it can catch up, but am unable to contribute myself.

2. PingPlotter [http://pingplotter.com/freeware.html]
Even the free version is immensely useful for fault diagnosis.
I've heard reports that it can be installed under Wine as root and run under Wine as root, but that's never worked for me.
Beside its default ICMP tracerouting, I'd like the Linux version to have tcp and udp style traceroutes as well so I can find things like broken transproxy servers.

jnetmap is a java based network mapper.

http://www.rakudave.ch/jnetmap/kop1.php

The pro edition of keepass supports linux (via mono)

Professional Edition
KeePass 2.13

Stable Release KeePass 2.13 (Installer EXE for Windows)
This package contains everything you need to use KeePass. Simply download the EXE file above, run it and follow the steps of the installation program. You need local installation rights (use the Portable version below, if you don't have these rights).

Stable Release Portable KeePass 2.13 (ZIP Package)
Download this ZIP package and unpack it to your favorite location (USB stick, ...). KeePass runs without any additional installation and won't store any settings outside the application directory.

Supported operating systems:
Windows 98 / 98SE / ME / 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / 7, each 32-bit and 64-bit, Mono (Linux, Mac OS X, BSD, ...).

Prerequisites:
Microsoft .NET Framework ≥ 2.0 (preinstalled on Windows ≥ Vista) or Mono ≥ 2.6.

Hi peonuser,

That's great news about KeePass 2.13 - I hadn't noticed that release. Previous releases have been running under Mono, but didn't have the most useful features like Auto-Type working properly.

On jNetMap... Yes, I'm familiar with it and it is a usable tool for basic monitoring once you start writing shell scripts for it. It's a completely different beast to PingPlotter, however.

Try PingPlotter Free out on a Windows machine (or get it running under Wine if you can) to see what I mean. Its statistical logging (check the Edit/Copy as Text menu) and graphing alone make it useful. The Standard and Professional editions build on top of that. I've used the Free version to prove to my ISP that their transproxy server has been broken on a few separate occasions and it helps to find overloaded routers (packet loss) and flapping routes (nodes changing address) as well.

Thanks,
AL.

I would like to see a native Linux version of Paintshop Pro - another alternative to GIMP and Photoshop. Some versions do run already under Wine, though.

You may want to take a look at Gimp Studio - AFAIK it tries to be more like PSP or Photoshop.

I used MS since the days of Dos. Still have my xp and previous licenses. However we have been MS free for five years now. I will use and or support any os if you pay me enough, but I am not going back to MS for even one program on a personal machine. I might be able to suggest a more pro package than jnetmap if you like.

Acronis Trueimage Home with ext4 support. Currently no way to restore individual files folders as in NTFS partitions. Really need a trusted GUI solution like Acronis in a dual boot environment as they already support RAID 0 drivers in bootable CD. While linux geeks are happy with rsync command line and DD etc. i just fine them confusing and the cost of making an error can be VERY high if a parttition gets hosed in the process or restore is mangled.
