That's why there's Xbox Linux! You get everything you need including the good games. Xbox is the greatest thing that Microsoft has ever done. Once Linux takes over the OS department (which will be great because no single distro will ever reign supreme... although Deb distros will still be the best (ha ha))... I hope that Micro$oft is reduced to nothing but a huge game system company.

For me, something like WINe would do until I start seeing some native Linux apps. I just wish I knew how to make some of the more fussy Windows apps run under Linux.

Do you mean using WINE and a windows application? Or is there really one useable directly via Linux?

And of course a second one would be Photoshop. I like the Gimp but I still can't wing myself from not using Photoshop for graphic editing/creation needs.

Cheers.


Definitely.

ModPlug

www.modplug.com

Fortunately, this one works beautifully under WINe.

Also, I would like to see some more drivers. ...speaking of which, what kind've tool can I use to work on a joystick driver since mine is not supported under Linux? I have a USB joystick that has no driver.
