At this point, the only reason I use my Windoze partition is for Pinnacle Studio (14). When it comes to simple video editing (e.g., clipping the beginning or end of a video file, combining videos, etc.), Avidemux works fine. With Pinnacle Studio, I can change light settings, add video effects and add titles. I haven't found a Linux program that can do those things easily. There may be a Linux program out there that I haven't heard of yet; I'm open to suggestions.

dreamweaver???

For everyone asking for dreamweaver...have you tried Aptana Studio? Personally I prefer it to DW.

I wish Netflix would have a Linux version of there streaming software.

One Very Good Dictionary for all Uses

Teckk:

Thanks for the reply. The Stardict website indicates that this one is no longer supported and that they have lost some of the script and it has not been worked on in several years. Several forms of Stardict and support programs are available from The Ubuntu Software center. Goldendict claims to be the successor to Stardict and is also available from The Ubuntu Software Center. It does not appear that either one is normally connect to email or a word processor as the spell check source. Also both seem too elabert and their display too extensive to be effective as a document spell checker.

Ok, I thought you were looking for a stand alone dict with a GUI.

Look at aspell and ispell.

Thumbs up About virtualdub

Yes virtualdub is very very good I have used it on windows even

Copy protection emulation in a virtual drive... That's what I am talking about.

Nero is bloated.... I have great respect for the k3b team and I am confident they can put together a version of k3b that has all the elements of Nero and isn't too heavy.Also you would have enough reasons already known to you as to why Nero disallows disc burning and creating at the same time even with multiple cores.Anyway Nero is not the best disc burner anymore on Windows.

Between mencoder, ffmpeg, mpgtx, mpgjoin/split, and a few other apps I can't think of right now, Linux has just about any functionality that virtualdub has, except point and click splicing of video (if that's the right term?). The problem is they are not unified into an app like VirtualDub or Super.

Yeah, that goes to freeware CDBurnerXp, if I recall correctly?

teckk:

Thanks for your reply. It showed how little I know about software. As it turns out, I have Ubuntu 10.4 which has aspell installed. I was looking for something with some more capability and I do not think I am using the same dictionary for Open Office and my email package. I need to read a description on how this is all tied together. Any suggestion?

It's called marketing. It's about companies (managers, CEO's) who want to make money and quality is no issue. Like some of the Linux community where Quality is first concern and time spent to get there is no issue. A blind spot.

Its always so frustrating when I read something so cynical .. and accurate. There's probably a more charitable answer: Big companies start with small simple Miminmum viable products, which are written quickly and without a great deal of concern for design. The plan is always to include maintenance and reliability features later. As the target begins to move, companies rush feature-after-feature to market in an attempt to ward off single-feature competitors, building middlewares to coordinate with strategic partners. Quality is always forces behind competitiveness, until the only think that can really compete on it's own is the companies market dominance and brand recognition.

Not always. If there is a version of the same burner in 'OEM' (no sofware, no cable, normally sold in just a anti-static bag) format as well as 'retail pack' the OEM version is always cheaper.

Nero is seriously bloated IMO. When it was just a burner, it was good, but there days it takes almost as long to untick all the worse than useless junk nero comes with as it does to install.....

Yeah, I remember that I had to burn a DVD with a friends computer, but he didn't have a burning program installed. So we installed the Nero version that came with his computer (I think it was Nero 7 or 8), and it was a full blown install of more than 1.5GB. Just to burn a DVD, he never used the extra features. We changed that to CDBurnerXP after a while and it was perfectly fine.
