Someone said SPSS. A prog called PSPP might be of interest. It's still in early stages of develop. Here is the web site.
I would like to see skype ported to linux. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's software that lets you phone over the internet, but with much higher sound quality then with VoIP (voice over IP) and without additional hardware requirements, other then an headphone set. It's not big yet, but I predict it will be within a certain amount of time. It's from the same people who created kazaa and also works with p2p technology.
If linux is to survive on the desktop market, I think such an app is essential, because people are alraigdy talking about doing away conventional telephones and use these kind of applications instead. So someone should either make an linux app just like it (and preferably distribute it under the gpl license), or the company that makes skype should port there app to linux.

Nero Burning ROM

i tried the 2 cd writers that came with RedHat 9 and they're not as easy to use.

I would disagree that it's at least as easy as Nero. I normally use Nero express and I don't think you can get any more intuitive than it's interface. I like K3B more than any other Linux CD burning program but it's not as good as Nero.

Cheers.

Finale (music notation program).

IIRC version 2004 for Mac is (finally) a OSX native app, so maybe it wouldn't be too off the wall to port it to Linux? This is the main reason I still use Win2k at work. I don't use Finale at home, so I'm M$-free there, at least.

1. American Heritage Dictionary
2. Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary

Both these are available online at no cost, but that doesn't replace the convenience of having them on your own computer. I used them before I said goodbye to Windows. If I could get Wine to work, I could probably use them now...

3. Virtual Globe (Cartografx Corporation) It was wonderful. Another casualty of finally giving up on Windows....

4. A program equivalent to the old MakeDOC program for converting text files to .pdb files for use on Palm OS devices (makes it possible to read public-domain works on the bus, etc.) There are at least two Linux programs that purport to fulfil this function but I have struggled and given up trying to get them to work: you just about need to be a programmer and a system analyst to make sense of the intricacy of installation--as with so many things Linux.

DRIVERS!!! Why cant companies simply add *nix drivers to thier product cd's. I love linux, but im getting tired of hour long configs for the simplest of hardware. I spent nearly 11 hours trying to get my wireless network card to work ( it does now), but the lack of support from the company makes me thing again about buying from them.

Datapilot or snapsync.

Any equivalent of macromedia and adobe products.

It's a simply matter of supply and demand. A company won't write drivers unless the demand makes it economically feasible. It will cost X dollars to add additional drivers and to make a profit they have to spread that cost over a large client base. This is the only way they can stay competitive.

I agree with you and would suggest something like what I do. BEFORE I buy something I check their web site for Linux compatiblity. If it's not listed will contact them and ask about availability. If they don't provide Linux drivers I tell them I won't buy or recommend their products and that I'll use a competitor who has the same product that supports my OS. This is really the only way to make the companies understand.

Cheers.

I would like Jcreator ported to linux, even though it runs the icons are messed, and you aren't able to directly compile as you would with windows.

I would be happy with cubasis (the baby version of cubase) on Linux. I am an (amateur) musician & the dearth of suitable Linux apps is one of the things that keeps me dual booting windows. I am sure someone will reel off a list of names of Linux apps like Ardour & Audacity but there is nothing that comes close to even the lower end apps in windows. There is also a problem with soundblasters & midi in Linux, oh yes & the breakout box too.
The other thing I really use is IBM via voice speech to text software. A real timesaver.
