re RH9 (vs 7.3)


I should update my profile - I use mostly Mandrake 9.2 now (just one RH7.3 system still running!). I switched because Redhat made it clear they were not interested in people using Linux on the desktop.

Bibliography package

Would like a nice and easy biliography package (endnote like) which integrtes nicely with Open office.

...though it is RedHat, I'd put some holes in Fedora. I'd first try to switch to something like Slackware, SuSE, Vector Linux (very interested in this one, if I could just get the dam ISO ), or even Knoppix. Many of the programs a friend of mine tried (that ran under RedHat) would fail under Fedora.

I would have to say 3d Studio Max. I just love that program.

That is really strange, programs seem to better for me in Fedora then they did in Redhat...

There is Dia of course, but you cannot do anything with your drawings (and it's clumsy). Kivio is a total crap.

I definitely need VISIO (or Corel FlowCharter)
Try Robochart one of the easiest to use flowcharter I've ever tried.

Try one of these:

Pybibliographer

Yapbib

The first one is easy to install if you're using Fedora.

The second is completely platform independent, but you need to install the gui tools first

Anyway, they're anywhere close to endnote...

The only 3D programs I've had any luck with are UnrealEd (if that counts) and Blender.

I've tried blender, but it doesn't even come close to 3d Studio Max 2.x or 3.x, let alone 4.x, 5.x, or 6.x. However, I did see Maya has linux support. The stupid thing about that program, though, is why would they take out mac support for their flagship version? Honestly, it defies all logic!
