I'd like to see Sonicstage or anything else that would allow me to use my MD in Linux.

Civ III

And other games like it.
I have Alien Crossfire and CivCTP for Linux, but I've played AC enough, CivCTP is not really that good (really controlling the game is too messed up)

I miss my old Windows Civ II, I really need CivIII for Linux!

Trillian Pro...
It would be a really hard port... lots of direct OS plugins that would have to be re-coded. But it's very worth it. And don't tell me that Gaim can do all of the same things, because it has a windows port. I've tried it and the interface is just not as nice as trillian, nor does it have the versatility of plugins that Trill Pro has.

I'd like to see Crimson Editor ported. It's a great freeware (but not open source by any means) development tool that in my opinion has no equals.

I didn't read all 938 posts, so forgive if this is repetition.

1. GIMP is fine... I wonder if a skin can be made to go over it so it interfaces like Photoshop. Photoshop is so easy to use. GIMP has the underlying engine... it just needs the refinement.

2. The SQL's are fine... can someone make a skin to go over them that makes them look like MS Access (a fine application)?

3. iTunes. iTunes. iTunes. iTunes. iTunes.

4. Yellow post it notes inside Ximian Evolution... that is the only thing it lacks to make it a complete MS Outlook replacement. I'd like to sync my Palm completely to Ximian. It seems like a small request.

5. A Vision quality flowcharter. ...some business process mapping and IDEF0 mapping would be a nice plus.

6. This is big: Some kind of APA (American Pyschology Assoc) formatting macros for Open Office Write. Someone could make a tiny living off that one. (it's the term paper format required in most US schools).

1. I mean it doesn't bother me the least, but one of the area Gimp is lacking is CYMK and thus colour management. That is what I keep reading anyway but there is a site that have details of all things artistic for Linux - I think its something like linuxartist.com

2. I really need an SQL client - that worked similarly to Enterprise Manager (which let's face it - a horrid piece of archaic software). I found Datadino - seems OK so far; fews bugs like - instead of an error message for a wrong input - you get a symbolic Java exception. Yeah its written in Java. But comparing with the dreadfully slow Enterprise Manager and not being Linux-biased here, I am finding it better. Note that Datadino is proprietory Java software costs $99 but will run on all OS's. There are other solutions seemingly very complicated and predictably very expensive: 3rd party ODBC drivers and so on.

3. Dont listen to music

4. KNotes - much .. much .. MUCH better than anything ever conceived .. can't live without it. Plus you can change the colours, unlike Outlook notes it runs independant of a software, like Outlook notes it saves on close, unlike Outlook notes you can have it in Rich Text Format .. Ok you got the idea. Brill stuff. Dunno if it behaves well on Gnome tho.

5. I wouldn't know - but this sort of app undoubtedly will have a Linux equivalent. Anything academic/scientific/ has many Linux versions - often better. I am having a play with Kivio and Dia as I type - see if they have "IDEF0" (whatever that is)

6. Macros are easy to do in Open Office. Says I, never having tried it :S
OK - not good.
But I have had a quick inspect at the Basic Macro language and it looked ever so analogous to Word VBA. Writing Office Macros was one of my initial skills.
I've read an article on making forms and macros on OpenOffice one day, and half-way through thought: Gosh almost the same.
So get the specs and think of the rules - write it in a paper.
If you need help give me a shout
If you want to go Open Source then such a "apparently" simple endeavour will attract many OO-macro enthusiasts.
If there is a code for Word already, then porting should be pretty fast.

Open Office is advanced in its macros. It has OOBasic, which you should take a day out to have a look at.

Have to agree with you henryg on KNotes. I have loads of them all over my desktop cursing me for not finishing some thing or correcting some other thing.

Yahoo Messenger with webcam support

I know that Gnomemeeting (GM) supports Netmeeting (MSN) users for webcams.
I would really like to see GM being ported to Yahoo messenger webcam, in that case I can kick out my windoz desktop since i use
it primararily for web conferencing.

thanks
