Adobe Lightroom should be another ported program. It is the best paying program for pro photographers. And I'd be willing to pay also.

I do not know if my story is relevant. A few years ago I became a Ubuntu fan and never went back. Since the thinkers or desinger of Ubuntu also came up with WINE it is becoming more interesting in the computer world to have an OS which can handle more than Ubuntu. I hear of the softwares Dreamweaver and Photoshop. Like the windows software Sothink Logo Maker Pro it installs on partialy on WINE but it does not drag and frop. Anybody know why a reply would be welcomed???

WINE has been around since the 1990s. Ubuntu didnt exist until 2004. As far as I know ubuntu had or has no any active part in the development of WINE.

I hate bringing my work home with me because it means I'm stuck on a windows machine.
As well as every other piece of software used in the industrial environment - e.g. Omron, Mitsubishi, Siemens, Schneider, Control Techniques, etc, etc, etc...

Something useful

I would like to see Quicken and Turbo Tax ported to Linux. Til then my Linux drive just gets plugged in about once a week to install updates and Windoze still lives on here. I tried running Quicken with Wine with no success.
Thanks for reading,

Jerry

Vietcong the game (originally for PC) though emulating through Wine doesn't work so well, if at all.

X-Rite Colour Checker, Photoshop and/or Lightroom and related softwares, I'm using GIMP at the moment, but it doesn't yet handle 16-bit images

TurboTax for e-filing my tax returns
Overdrive Console for accessing e-books (Adobe Digital Editions does run in Wine, but most of our local libraries offerings require Overdrive)

Yamaha Digital Music Notebook and Yamaha Musicsoft Downloader for use with my Yamaha keyboard

So does the Linux version of Corel's Aftershot Pro, which I also use. Neither Aftershop Pro nor digikam are functional equivalents to either Photoshop or GIMP, though.

What does Gimp do that Digikam doesn't?

TurboTax

If TurboTax were ported to Linux, then I could switch all of my computers to Linux and be finished forever with Micro$oft Windows.

Vectorworks

Vectorworks is an advanced architectural drafting program, well beyond Sketchup for example in being able to produce professional construction drawings efficiently, renders, and create a BIM environment. Sorta pricey, a bit less than Autocad. It would be GREAT if they had a Linux version, imo.
