CorelDraw was available for Linux sometimes, when Corel was part of WordPerfect. Not anymore. I have found Inkscape. Some people say Inkscape offers less options and features. Don't know, I stopped using CorelDraw after version 7. Inkscape is comparable to Corel 7. But it offers much more, like XML editing and command line exporting of objects. I even managed to write scripts to generate XML animatiion directly, in conjuction with Inkscape.

Tax software, yes.
I don't think windows has useful landscaping software, other than a spreadsheet. I'd be guessing whether macs ever had useful landscaping programs.
I tried SweetHome3d (on windows), but it doesn't seem to have much value. Sketchup with Dynamic Component cabinets and export to renderer, seems better.

VMWare vSphere client.
It sucks having to use Citrix or a Windows VM on my Red Hat workstation just to manage the dang vSphere environment.

Cad for linux

I would definately agree that it would be nice to see Photoshop on here, but as my other post shows
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...chines-945173/
It's a huge struggle to do computer modeling and CAD using Linux. I actually have a friend who is interested in creating a program like Solidworks for Linux, but I don't think he has time to complete it. Rhino is more like 3D Studio (which is used for game and movie characters) than Solidworks or Inventor.
Other great options would be Revit or even just basic Autocad

I hear you. Have you tried vEMan, though? http://sourceforge.net/projects/veman/

We run ESXi here and find the remote control in vSphere to be [bloody] awful, so we tend to RDP or VNC to the guests directly depending on their OS, not needing to do a lot of provisioning management through vSphere itself.

For "basic" AutoCAD you can try the commercial BricsCAD - they've got a native Linux vesion. It's a full featured 3D clone of AutoCAD, but without some of the newest features like Dynamic Blocks, Geometric Constraints, Dynamic Arrays, etc. I'd say it's like an AutoCAD from around 5 to 10 years ago. Though it's cheaper than the LT version of ACad (which IMO is a waste of time, not to mention much less than BricsCAD offers). It also works natively with normal acad DWG files (even the latest 2012 version of these files). For me though, I've been using those advanced features too much and it would make my work a whole lot less efficient to go back to doing it the old way in BricsCAD.

As for 3dStudio / Revit / SolidWorks ... great big plus from me! I think I've posted in this thread about those several times over! Or even just if Google can pull their finger out and make a Linux version of SketchUp I'd be willing to pay for that!

Hi all,
I come back. I registered my account from 2004 year, and use Linux 6.3 Red Hat Linux to fedora Code2.
Now I have time to discuss with you all.

I would like to see "BrainWave Generator" ported to linux. Its a program that is used to head phones and binaural beats to induce a state of mind that you want. It was a windows program I used to use to relax and meditate. There website is http://www.bwgen.com/

I agree with you on the Calc program. Just interested: what are your main problems?
For most graphics I have switched to bash/awk/gnuplot.
I am still using a Office 2000 spreadsheet with a reasonable large VBA program. The last time I tried oocalc could not process it. The oocalc internal programming language is next to unusable.

I don't follow. There's no "internal" language for Calc. The default is sBasic (which is similar though not exactly the same as VBA). BTW, even in MSO the VBA language is as dead as a doornail, try running your old DVB files inside Office 2007/10. I know, since I've made a VBA macro in Outlook 2003 for deleting duplicate emails ... it refuses to run in 2007 no matter what I try, even doing the workarounds noted on MSDN. The only way to get it working is to rewrite the entire thing in VB.Net.

Though in OOo / LibreOffice you can choose which other language you'd prefer. E.g. I know quite a lot of guys using Python instead of the sBasic, or even JavaScript.

The only thing I have against OOo's "languages" is the lack of proper documentation of their libraries. As a sample, see my sBasic codes for formatting numbers into Engineering Notation / SI Notation: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=5930#c59

Winamp

So far my only issue with Linux is not having Winamp. QQ etc. The capability of Winamp to get my music to sound just how I want it and the endless customizations make this program necessary for me.
