On the Itunes note if you run Itunes on Windows or more preferably a mac then you can set up a linux itunes server to serve all of music to your other machines......

AIM, Dreamweaver, Winamp,Nero

I would love to see AIM, Dreamweaver, Winamp, Nero, and Photoshop all ported to Linux. I have to go searching around the net for the open sourced versions of these programs, and I really liked the originals. I guess they don't have the time to convert all of these programs over to Linux and that is why they stick with the dominant OS, which unfortunately is MS Windows. I hate Windows, and I left it because of the patches problems, and product activation issues, and the overall slowness of the GUI.

I even used System Mechanic and that still didn't fix the problems.

I think AIM and WinAmp have variants in Linux: Gnome-AIM and XMMS. I have yet to try gAIM, but XMMS seems pretty good for me. Nero? I use X-CD Roast. Does real good for me (one of the few things I haven't been able to do under Winblows, but have pulled off under Linux.)

United Online used to have their ZeroPort available for Lindows, but it vanished. I want it available for Linux!

To add my $.02, I too would like to see the Dreamweaver Suite as well as a decent speech recognition application such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I also wish Kensington would start supplying drivers for their expert mouse in Linux. I am physically disabled which makes typing difficult and also Linux a bit harder to get used to when it comes to two or more finger keyboard shortcuts.

Oh yeah, also a binary newsreader such as NewsLeecher or Newsbin that supports Newzbin.com's NZB files.

That's a good point Robin, (about your "special ability", shall we say I gotta stop sounding like Bill Clinton! ) "It's too expensive to make disability software under linux!" I guess we need to file one of those frivolous lawsuits over discrimination.

I previously posted in this thread my vote for dreamweaver and most macromedia and adobe stuff, also nero although k3b is just fine.

I will like to add some CASE tool to visually design and generate databases, like ER/WIN and ER-Studio (this last one from Embarcadero). I am a programmer myself and I decided to code it, KDE compliant, using KDE/QT API. It will take some time but I'll learn KDE programming while solving my problem.

Macromedia Fireworks

That's all I need now. Even if Cross Over Office could run it, I would be so happy.

Have you tried it under WINe? One might be able to run something another emu (or "not an emu" ) won't.

Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop

I'm a graphic artist who has been using the Adobe products on Windoze for about 6 years. and I have to say that I don't think there are any better product s for this type of work. I just can't stand the fact that this is the only reason I have to stay shackled to micro$oft.

I would certainly be willing to pay full price for a full working port to Linux.

Missing Dreamweaver & Photoshop

I use Photoshop to work with blueprints, for designing an office at my internship. I find it simple and easy to use. All that Adobe would need to do is give a non disclosure agreement to a couple of Linux programmers and tell them to port it to Linux. That would be one of the wisest investments Adobe could make since they would be the first big player in the imaging market for Linux. I know about GIMP, but it lacks a lot of the features that PS 7 has. I especially like working with mulitple layers in PS and then flatening them out so they can blend into the background.

All they have to do is ask for help, I am sure their are experienced Linux users, who are programmers that would be willing to help them out. They could offer them a free software package as compensation for their work.
