Quicken. Moneydance is good by it is not Quicken.
Intuit is demon spawn. A port of any other bookkepping app would be better IMO.
Originally posted by furfurdemon666 VirtualDub which is already open source but for Windows. In my opinion, It's one of the best (if not THE best) utilities for working with .AVI files. It doesn't have a lot of the useless flashy GUIs that a lot of other programs for Windows do, and it just works! If anyone here uses Windows at all and does video editing, chances are you've used it already. If not, you really should! I've heard some people breathe that they've gotten virtualdub to work via WINE, but I haven't tried. I think this would be a useful program to port to Linux....
TMPGEmc , but I think this is closed source. I wish there was a port of this program for Linux as well. It's an awesome program for converting .AVI files to MPG and it works very, very well.
I agree... these are awesome apps.

VirtualDub dosn't work nicely on mpeg1 & 2. Where as Avidemux does. The only thing VirtualDub does that Avidemux dosn't is capture video. Like I said before when it comes to cutting mpeg video VirtualDub dosn't even come close to the ease of Avidemux. The last time I tried to use VirtualDub It had to be in Avi format(very large files on a very large hd) to edit and then I all types of Audio-sync problems. So..... I gave up on it.

I gotz one for ya: VI! ...that and the other million text editors Linux has. Linux is all about the ASCII text. ...though if you wanna run Notepad under WINe, that's your right, but you're missing out on our cool little text editors, most are way cooler than Notepad. Many will light up your commands while you're coding!
hay , this is my first post !
i would like to see good games in linux , i think another all things in linux has already ported , just needs to improve and take care of it ..
After all linux is great !!
Linux needs a text to speach programs, so you can copy text and your computer can read it outloud. Or you can download text files off the net and read them.
Also i think linux needs to imporve on the comblity with windows, systems so you can at least veiw linux word documents etc... in windows if you chose. Or programs that will switch windows files in to linux files...
linux also needs Optical Character Recognition scanner programs that are better...
i doubt anyone else will have any interest in it, but id like to see more progs for the Dreambox/dbox2 (enthusiast satellite reciever), it runs an embedded linux os and was the reason i started learning linux, but there are shockingly few progs for managing the features for linux os while there are bucketloads for windows, which seems strange given the boxs linux basis
