As far as a nice application for music that you can mix and record on the fly MIXXX
I am trouble shooting the 1.12.alpha right now at it just blows away anything else out there as far as simplicity and the abillty to run 4 samplers at one time and the two decks 4 vinyls it is a serious work horse for a performer that wants to record live and broadcast at the same time and mixx all at once.
I do it all in Slackware 14.0 and 14.1 M$ has nothing of this quality unless you want karaoke apps.

I'd like to see Tom Tom sat nav update software ported over to Linux. It's the only reason I need MS Windows now. After Windows has failed me with hardware support for a perfectly good scanner, Linux came to the rescue

Exclamation Silverlight

Silverlight so my wife can watch Netflix on her laptop and not have all that Windows viruses, malware, Anti-viral software, anti-malware software, and other crap to deal with!

Or even better netflix could actually provide a linux option that would protect the drm system...

TaxAct appears to be usable only for filing USA tax returns, and as I'm not a US taxpayer, I don't believe I can use it at all, whether with Ubuntu, Windows, MacOS or any other OS.

If you're going down the patched Wine+Silverlight route to use Pipelight then there's also the 3rd party "Netflix Desktop App". At least is seems a little more self-contained, ref:

Hi

Silverlight is actually fairly easy to setup on Linux now. There is a program called Pipelight which works with Wine. I run Netflix and Sky Sports through it and have no issues at all. There is a good waklkthrough by the team that manage Pipelight:

http://fds-team.de/cms/pipelight-installation.html

I found there was a bit of an issue sometimes with the "sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight" part and found that you can enable a specific version with:

sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight5.0

The walkthrough covers all this. Additionally, Linux Format ran an article on installing Pipelight in the latest issue - 182 April 2014.

Hope this helps and keeps your wife happy!

Richard

I don't like the Netflix Desktop, the Wine+Silverlight lets me choose my browser.

1. Photoshop - Definitely the most requested program for Linux. Yeah, GIMP is good, but it still doesn't match Photoshop.
2. TurboTax
3. <Insert your favorite PC game here>

There is a Linux alternative called Pipelight, which is supposed to be compatible. I've never had a need for it, so I don't know if it works fully.

Pipelight works fully and is truly awesome big pat on the back to the folks who made that happen.

First off THANK YOU ALL for all you do to PROMOTE LINUX! I'm a recent convert from XP and have installed Zorin on 1 laptop and Linux Lite on 2 PCs (still have 3 PC's & 1 more laptop to migrate).

I would like to see Rootsmagic (also the name of the company) and Personal Historian (from the same company) native on Linux. Both are Family History related programs that are cutting edge that have features that GRAMPS doesn't have. I'd be willing to pay for both. I know Rootsmagic has bugs in WINE (I reported them).

I would also like to see Linux be made more user friendly so that it cleans Microsoft's clock (yes I'm not a MS fan and have really grown to dislike them over the years)! I'm trying to move others on XP over to Linux so I think this is key to getting software companies to look at Linux!

Keep up the GREAT work!
John
