Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Im very suprised! Every app in the MX studio was mentioned except for Fireworks! I love Fireworks! The ONLY reason Im dual booting right now is to use fireworks! MACROMEDIA! PLEASE MAKE FIREWORKS FOR LINUX! ( :
I know macromedia makes MX for mac os, and in'st mac os similar to a unix backend?
Edit: Nevermind... I finally discovered the "Search This Thread" option and found out that it was mentioned. Ooops. ( :
Mirc... all i ask (at the moment) to be ported over is mirc. Irssi and kvirc, ksirc, bitchX and co are all great programs in their own right... but mirc really does beat them hands down.
winamp and winrar are two other programs i think deserve a mention. xmms is nice but.. small and annoying and the rar program i use at the moment also gets that comment too.. small and annoying. I like being able to see what im doing and not have to work blind ( despite the fact that i am somewhat vision imapred).
Games of all sorts. MiRC, dataBase of some sort to match access. Winamp, kazaa lite, a media player to match 9.0 by M$, a complete quality browser: Nutscrape iz nice but tinker tinker to complete with Java and real player while linux opera version is complet it sux comaperd to windoze version, why? Mailwasher pro. and more games.
I am pretty much completely Open Source. OpenOffice.org works well for me, and GIMP 2.0 will be great (I've been using 1.3 for a long time!). A Dreamweaver like program is always popular, however I'll give bluefish a go and see how I get on.
Programs that we don't have:
Good CAD package - Solidworks, AutoDesk Inventor, AutoCAD
Audio recording packages - Protools, Nuendo, Cuebase etc.
I'd pay full price for these packages if I really wanted/needed them. I don't really do much with CAD any more (I was a mechanical Engineer in a previous life) but I'm becoming more interested in digital recording for my musical interests.
Having said all of this, I'd rather see good solid Open Source replacement (I'm sure that there are many in the pipeline, or already exist somewhere), and preferably in gtk (and qt I suppose!).

Isn't there a KaAzA for Linux? I thought I saw a KaAzA for Linux when I was setting up my account with them a year ago.
...and yes, Linux does need some decent games, as well as for everyone to jump onboard. They're all missing a good marketing opportunity.
