great 3D directX screensavers


I know it is for fun only but it would be great to have these
great 3D directX screensavers on linux:

http://www.lifeglobe.com/product/Goldfish/index.php

Is Point2Play working on 3D directX translation?
Or did anybody get it running with winex?

I've noticed something: Everyone's wanting a native version of existing software just as I am. Why aren't they picking up on the trends?

btw: some of it may be available for Lindows Click-N-Run. Can you get Click-N-Run for use on another Linux flavor? That would rock if you did have it on your RedHat box.

side note: has anyone who uses Lindows noticed that the Trash when full has the Windows logo in it?

As a working photographer -- Photoshop would be great for me. My Nr 1 desired app.

Open office is getting better every release -- but I still like M$ Office especially EXCEL, PROJECT, POWERPOINT and Word 4 'Doze.

Crossover Office from Codeweavers allows me to run these apps under Linux (http://www.codeweavers.com )

MySQL beats the S--T out of Ms ACCESS so I don't need that program anymore and it's FREE.

Otherwise now I have Wifi finally working I don't really need 'Doze anymore.

Just a couple of Networking things to sort out and BYE BYE to the man from Seattle.

The distro I'm using has been really stable and works fine.

You can try it.

...as far as CrossOver office, many people I've talked to told me that Codeweavers just had too much time to try to get M$ Office working under Linux. (not me though ) Still, I like OpenOffice and StarOffice better.

Getting Roxio to run with Wine on linux is a project for another time.. yet it would be worth it...

Because with XCDRoast you can't just drag you MP3s, and they convert and burn in the same program...

In fact the one thing I have missing the most in Linux is Morrowind. Morrowind is just too complicated for Wine or WineX, but it's one of the best games out there.

Bethesda, if you see this messege please consider a port

Yeah, those greedy guys who own MP3.

dushkinup, relating to your sig, you pronounce SuSE like the girl's name "Suzy". I used to think it was Sue-Say. Anyway, what's the point of Morrowind? I've never heard of it. It sounds like an RPG, like Final Fantasy or something.

Yes, It's an RPG. But not just an RPG - It creates a living world inside your computer. You only have a few missions you must do and afterwards you just freelance in the wild, join guilds or just kill people.

I used to have about five characters before I switched to Linux. Though Linux fulfils most of my needs.. I... I <sniff> I Wanna play Morrowind!

I'm running a sound-studio with windows 2000
It would have been cool to have cubase running in linux, with that fast and stable source, it would have been like heaven
And ofcourse full-duplex for my eight i/o soundcard, hehe...
