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. ( :

I was about to say, we've been running Fireworks into the ground.

I still want my NetZero to be RedHat enabled.

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).

Too right!

That is the only reason we have windows desktops in our office now. If IBM want us to avoid using Microsoft, they need to make an alternative to Exchange that works in Linux

Microsoft will always have something proprietary that only they can use. ...I guess the only thing we can do is try to run it under WINe.

I agree with Anubis - Lotus Notes, and good gaming support (not ports, but native!)

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!).

Lyn.

I would have to say Cubase SX and any VST compatible instruments (i know there not exactly open source) but it would be good for linux music to have a major piece of software as an option

not sure if anyone has seen this....i'm sometimes a little behind the times on things

This program is supposed to be a lot like Dreamweaver. I'll stick to Quanta but some may find this program useful if you like Dreamwearver

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.
