Dreamweaver
Paint Shop Pro
Dragon Dictate
Winamp
Nero or BHA for CD writing -UDF writing is still not supported by Linux Ps

The repetition of Macromedia/Adobe/Nero shows how well Linux is doing

I've been using Linux for the last past 4yrs. What is Linux Ps? I already do all my DVD writing under Linux. I'll never but never put my DVD burner in a windows machine again ever since a got a virus and it got the burner. Had to re-flash it to get it working again. Since then I've burnt over a 100 DVD's in Linux. I've even wrote my own DVD authoring program. Dosn't do menus yet but I'am working on it.

I know XMMS doesn't really play MP3-s without some work. It just has an MP3 placeholder. ...other than that, I don't know.

Not much work, just a matter of downloading and installing a plugin...

...well I would like to know where the decent ones are all hiding. Thanks to greed, they're illegal to have now since the evil empire wants money for any MP3 encoder/decoder. fortunately, I think we now will see a major shift toward Ogg Vorbis.

I would like information from Sonique on how to write firmware for my MP3-CD player. I would like to add Ogg-Vorbis support to it (and maybe remove Windows Media support )

Isn't MP3 actualy trademarked by the Moving Pictures Expert Group? ...since it is, after all, MPEG 1 Layer 3. Strangely, though their name's on it, they don't get the royalties.

There two that I would like to see:
From Charles Johnson at "Little Green Footballs & Codehead Software" his old Atari program "Codekeys". Allowed programing the keyboard for macros and tie the trigger key to specific programs. some of the other Codehead prgms would be nice as well.
Another is "AdSubtract" from Intermute. The windoz version goes for $30.

Talking macromedia

Well I am sure some will get alot of programs to work using wine and alot of persistensy,
however for me I have never really understood how to get stuff to work in wine ..

But what I meant was that I wanted those "ported" to linux
so we can get all the benefits from linux/open source to our old
time favorit programs.

okie dokie .. have a good one

Thumbs down Porting proprietary software

While I too have a list of Windows based software I'd like to use -PhotoShop, Nero, and about a dozen PC games... the problem becomes cost. Software manufacturers will only port to Linux if they can make what they do providing software for Windows and Macs. The day that happens, Linux becomes something entirely different.

Most essential Windows programs

The most essential Windows programs are:

1) MS Office--but I already use OpenOffice.org so that one's okay

2) InstallShield--or something that does good installs EVERY time
--by this, I mean (for the love of God!) I shouldn't have to worry about which distribution or version I'm on or whether I'm using SuSE 8.1 or 9.0 or Redhat or debian

This is the most critical to Linux's success. Because most people don't have the skills to play around with dependency problems

3) Games, dammit! 90% of nerdy guys out there (like me) play games and until you have good games, you aren't gonna have Linux addicts...any coincidence MS has focused a lot on gaming the last few years? (Think x-box and online) Coincidence? I think not.
