Assuming that Games are allowed too in this post:

Half Life 2 and Counterstrike: Source

This would greatly improve the polpularity of Linux among younger users (and myself )

it won't happen ever
but you could try Transgaming

Half Life 2 and Counterstrike apparently works with that.

To back-up DVDs you need K3B - install that.
To use P2P - you need either aMule, BitTorrent or even LimeWire
but you need to make sure you have Java installed to make LimeWire work.

Should be easy in Suse.

To use Wine ...
don't.
Wine is extremely hard - unless you are willing to devote your time in making wine work through various tricks/hacks and endless debugging (some people do that as a hobby)

If you really need an emulator - the saner choice would be to consider Cross Over Office. Download the 1-month Demo and see if it suits you.

Another emulator that works with only Windows 98 - but is betten in my opinion is Win4Lin.
There is a downside to it - it is very difficult to install and configure.
Though not as impossible as Wine.
It is also more expensive than CrossOver.

Chances are - every single application .. or lets put it 95% of all applications that you ever need are in Linux and all of them are free.
Only emulators and some ported applications are usually commercial.

Do search your menu to see what you already have - and fire-up YAST Online
to download and update packages.

I mean download anything you think looks vaguely useful
- it won't cost you a dime (unless you are on dial-up!)

Linux is pretty complete in itself.

And visit this thread as they would know more about Suse than me:

1. Nero Burning ROM (Imagine this app on a desktop distro like SUSE 9.2 or Mandrake 10.1, Awesome! )
2. FlashFXP
3. Alcohol 120% (Copy protection is a major issue for me when I wanna play of my, legally bought, games, with Alcohol 120% I wouldn't have to use a crack all the time, just use the image on a virtual CD-rom drive )
4. Steam (Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Half-Life 2...), yes I know you can play it with Cedega, but a Linux native version is never a bad idea
5. WinRAR (I'd like a GUI for extracting my files, I hate using rar x <filename>.rar all the time)
6. Adobe Photoshop
7. Adobe Premiere

Try K3B for nero, isofs for alcohol, some graphical archivers (ark or so) for rar.

A MAPPING PROGRAM!!!! without having to connect to the internet.

Streets and Trips would be AWESOME. I'm actually going to use wine and see if I can load this on my mandrake machine.
