Man 52 pages of programs...... sorry all I only got through the first 8 or so.

I only keep Win around for AutoCAD, specifically Architectural Dektop 3.3. Then of course ther is 3D Viz, and Rhino. To kill time, maybe Forte Inc. Agent. Pan is pretty good, but I don;t know how to tweak it yet.

How about something along the lines of M$ Publisher? That's really the only reason that I keep going into windows.

Serif

I have been on at the people at Serif to port things like pageplus or drawplus to Linux.

I'd happily pay the same price again to get products this good onto the system.

Why all this talk of Wine? Is it best to be drunk while using some parts of Linux?

this thread rocks.

i just want to express my grave dissatisfaction with xmms. by which i mean that i love it because it's an integral part of my life and my beautiful fully
-commandable, -customizable, and -free system - my system that i love so much. when people ask my why i like linux i tell them that i can write scripts that will wait a half hour, stop xmms, then wait 8 hours, turn the volume up, and start xmms to a good wake-up song... i even got my Logitech Elite "Windows optimized" keyboard to operate different functions in xmms & mozilla (etc.) through use of its mutimedia keys.
so i love xmms, cause i can do all this stuff.
which, i guess, is to say that i love linux, and the way that it lets me take the metaphorical screwdriver to the guts of my system - as opposed to wanting to take a sledgehammer to a windows machine.
but xmms sucks. what's the deal with not being able to save playlists? and why isn't there a halfway decent library function? (additionally, i've found that the equalizer causes horrible distortion on my machine. anyone know of a good mixer tool - full spectrum controls, etc?)
so where does that leave me... i guess i'd like to see itunes available. which kinda puts me in a bad position, doesn't it... is it really never going to happen???

what else... yeah, i like nero, but for my uses i've been able to write little scripts that utilize lame, cdrecord & cdrdao, among others, to write perfectly reasonable audio cds from mp3. having to use lame is a little bit of a hassle, but writing my own script was kinda fun, and easy, and works really well with the way i've organized my music files.
so to that effect i'd like to side with all those above me (i won't try to quote anybody... 52 freakin pages, wow) who have encouraged users to write their own programs. not that i can, or anything - just a few little scripts, and stupid java stuff - but it's damn cool when something you made works, and i've usually found that i know what i want more than some silicon-valley fools do. it's mostly just a matter of wether or not i know how to accomplish it.
but it's inspiring. all of the sudden my computer is a huge project...

by the way - does anyone find that animated "newbie" smiley to the left of the reply dialog to be really distracting when you're posting?? jeez, why won't that "i" dude stop smiling and do what he's supposed to?

...having said that, i think i should be done here.
-spencer

ps although i haven't the slightest idea how to use it, i'd be down with a little AutoCAD on my machine. what kinds of related products *are* available??

iTunes for linux would be great. I think that when you compare the win 98-style xmms to iTunes you should really agree on that xmms isn't the best choice. The only advance xmms has is that it's open source.

But I guess it's up to Apple if they want to port it, but since it is ported to windows, and is built for Darwin os, it shouldn't be that tricky to get it to work under linux, right?
