Kill the Notepad! VI and emacs are both way better.

It wouldn't hurt my feelings to have the Windows Pinball game ported.

only kidding, i like pico/nano (and i think xterm or aterm, or something cool i found in vector4/xfce4).

EDIT: d'oh, xterm & aterm are terminals, not editors!

Anyway, xterm does get you to VI, so we can overlook that.

Yes they should be ported and no not using DirectX. They should use the Linux equivalent - SDL or Mesa. Open GL is now owned by M$. If M$ wanted they could start charging a royalty fee for using Open GL and DirectX Do you want to pay M$ for overpriced sw?
