I thought I remembered a Stats program from the past. SAS Statistical Analysis System ;
I went to Wikipedia.org and entered "SAS statistical" and got the expected "no such page" thing and then a lot of interesting information popped up.

As I remember it, SAS was designed for Window$ and one (person or group) made efforts to port it to Linux. Another faction wrote a "look alike" that ran on Linux, came with source in case the math routines needed correcting, and ran very well on Linux. Data sets were interchangeable between OSs.

SPSS I don't know. First time I have heard of it. Obviously not my field of endeavour. If you look SAS up on Wikipedia you might find what you seek. I have no base for comparison.

R is a platform independent project for statistical computing and its "foreign" add-on can read and write data in the SPSS format.

I don't mind seeing Mac programs like iMovie or other special effects video editing applications.

Sirona inLab and/or Wieland advanced CAM and 3shape dental designer

I'd really like to see these ported to Linux, or at least workable under Wine64, though it'll probably never happen.

I am sure this has already been posted but it would be great if Autodesk had Linux versions of AutoCAD and Inventor, not to mention Revit and all their other design programs. I would be happy!

Mainly I would like to see google do everything it does in Linux. They ported Google earth completely but that's not a norm for them, there was never a working port of SketchUp and it didn't hold up well under Wine. They have put a lot of development muscle behind Chrome and Android which are both open and basically custom kernel Linux anyway. I would really like it if they went ahead and supported one or the other as a full desktop distro with access to the store and everything. I have to believe it would be easy for them, Lenovo and Samsung have both already taken halfhearted swipes at it but I think it has real potential. The ecosystem is already in place to make money at it as well.

Chrome, both browser and OS, are in no way open.

Not AutoDesks' but this comes "really" close to being an AutoCAD replacement, native Linux (not through Wine). http://www.bricsys.com/

As for the rest (Revit in particular) ... I'm also searching. Have been doing so for years now.

What you get there is the source code for Chromium, not Chrome. Google adds some parts to Chromium and releases it as the closed source Chrome.

To be clear, Google bought SkU from (At)Last in 2006, then spent a few years fiddling with its interface (many people I know who use it a lot actually hated what Google did to it - they still have old versions of SkU 6 installed since its usability in their opinion exceeds any new version). And since last year Google sold SkU to Trimble, so they've dropped that from their repertoire.

I wonder if it's some new management decision in Google - they've recently sold of Motorola Mobile as well. Perhaps they're starting to focus more on their most profitable aspects, if so it's a sad day for innovation - let's face it Google drove a lot of innovation (when they didn't simply buy it).

TobiSGD is correct about Google not being (entirely) Open Source. They're at best semi-open as with their Chrome browser where the core is open sourced, but not the full program. If you want to see a "real" open source browser then look at Mozilla's Firefox (source for the latest full program available here): https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/...de/Source_Code
