Even though it's already been mentioned, I'd love to see ImgBurn ported. It's one of the best pieces of software I use, WRT speed, reliability, and feature set. The closest Linux burner program that I'm aware of is K3B and you have to buy into KDE. I'm a LXDE guy nowadays.

This next one is a nice, small freeware util called Agent Ransack. Smart REGEX file searching w/ an excellent GUI. Way better than using just FIND or LOCATE. It's smart file searching bec after performing a search on a list of paths, subsequent searches of those same paths (during the same session) take less than half the time, apparently some on-the-fly indexing....

cMUD from Zuggsoft!!!!!

Oh man, would it be nice to have cMUD from Zuggsoft available. I've looked at tintin and its a marvelous MUD client. However I learned to MUD unfortunately in 1995 and it was on Windows.

Sadly, Zuggsoft doesn't appear to be interested in a linux port. Presumably because the product runs fine in wine. Still, wine is SLOW on my junker and I would love to see it ported to linux. (http://zuggsoft.com).

The most important program for me that I cannot run in Linux is TaxAct for filing income tax. I would be willing to pay the regular price for this (since I already do), and I do not need it to be open source either. It is the only program I run on Windows.

For you PhotoShop guys, try GIMP 2.7 or 2.8 - if you cannot do what you need to do, maybe you are a Windows person.

Oh, and you can add me to the Photoshop, Dreamweaver list.
It looks like adobe has already ported some of their other products to *nix platforms (other than reader). http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...KB2R4AVDJBKIV2

I agree, having to reverse engineer every Windows driver takes time and no small amount of guesswork - been there done that


QUOTE=ezra143;557175]DRIVERS!!! Why cant companies simply add *nix drivers to thier product cd's. I love linux, but im getting tired of hour long configs for the simplest of hardware. I spent nearly 11 hours trying to get my wireless network card to work ( it does now), but the lack of support from the company makes me thing again about buying from them.

Datapilot or snapsync.

Any equivalent of macromedia and adobe products.[/QUOTE]

I miss Propellerhead's Reason for music making. Linux have good real-time support. Perfect for DAW software.
I would bay the software because I know its working for me. Window is not working for me...

The simplest and finest CD burner for Linux is Brasero, good for all *buntu flavors; but is not the only one.... remembering that *nix distros let you mount an .ISO image as virtual drive, and copy to/from it everything.

For burning CD images you can be embarrassed by the choice range: Unebootin, Tuxboot, Liveusbinstall, Brasero, K3B ......

For *buntu distros, the Ubuntu Software Center fill in your eyes with near everything you would desire.

The ISO9660 filesystem is read-only, you can't copy to it.

Yes, that's all very good, but if you work mostly with BluRay discs, then Brasero, or any other burners you mention will not help you.
I read K3B now has support for BluRay, but I have not tried it since I don't want to load or maintain a tonne of Qt libraries, nor have I heard about anyone using K3B for BluRay disc burning.

I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who's had success with K3B and BluRay since NEROLINUX is now abandon-ware, and it's only a matter of time it breaks with a future kernel upgrade.

Regards.

It depends on what you mean with "Bluray burning". K3B (and I think Brasero also, but I am not sure) has no problems with burning Bluray data discs, the problems start when you want to burn Bluray video discs, since Linux lacks support for the needed levels of the UDF file system. There is, AFAIK, currently no solution for that.

CD/DVD burning S/W

@JINHIL :
sorry I didn't pay attention to BlueRay, you're right. Indeed the stuff is quite a blackhole in *nix.
I fully share your advice on , but let me make one consideration about NeroLinux, nowadays such a (big) software-house the let in middle-of-the-ford *nix users, don't worth we interested in anymore ..!

@TobiSGD :
I 'don't know for which usage you advice, but for me FUSEISO9660 and GMOUNTISO, relatively to CD, work fine for me in Gnome.


I hope soon some s/w maker listen to these needs...
