I would like to see McAfee port their centralised Antivirus program Epolicy Orchestrator to full linux compatibility i tried to run it using wine and although i got a few errors (which i ironed out) it still refused to look towards anything other than mssql which it demanded to be installed, the reason i ask is because we currently run the program on a windows server that is almost out the door, and we cannot afford a top of the range server just for AV updates and centralised admin of all the clients in our business, I find that linux is much more stable than windows, we currently pay a hell of a lot to McAfee for our products and would gladly pay more for a linux version of EpO and help out with beta testing if they do decide to release a version, they already did it with virusscan why not epolicy, come on ppl, i cant be the only one who feels like this?

Sony Vegas 5.0

I would like to see the multitrack mixing, video editing software Vegas 5, from Sony, being ported to linux, as I produce my own music, and due to lack of features in linux multitrack mixers (i.e Ardour GTK), I still dual boot :/

iTunes

I dont like the fact that I have to fiddle around with wine and stuff just to get a windows installer error...it would be much easier if it was natively supported.

I guess I could add my vote to the photoshop/dreamweaver crowd, but IMO gimp works just as well as ps, and I would guess that's the case for about 90% of all users. Dw can also be substituted, it's all about code after all.

The one program I really really miss though is corel painter. I would love to see that one ported.

I speak on behalf of the entire music industry:

Logic 7
reason 3
cubase SX 3
Sony sound forge 7

and authough rosegarden, muse and wired are all excelent, they arn't good enough substitutes at this time (coders being brilliant at coding and not at music - sorry, its true!)

i am a pro audio technical demonstrator, studio engineer and freelance producer - if any coders want to work with some1 musical to develope a sequencer (or contribute to a current linux music project) then ask me! i want to contribute to the development of linux, but my coding is crap - the most programming iv done is making simple front ends..... But any developers in here looking to build a decent sequencer, im happy to help!

ps the gimp is as good as photoshop. You just need to know how to use it. granted photoshop looks more apealing with half the graphics industry using it, but gimp can do alot when you get into it.

iFinger – the popup dictionary

iFinger – the popup dictionary (engine)

I find it very useful tool in reading and writing. I can lookup (and replace) any selectable word anywhere (not only in word) with a single “key”. A large number of dictionaries are there in the collection. I use Oxford English Dictionary. A free version (Windows) of Merriam-Webster Concise Dictionary is available at http://www.ifinger.com/shop/productp...ion.asp?pID=44 and most other dictionaries can be used for a trial period.

I am very new to Linux, So, if you know something like this or an engine which can use the iFinger modules, please let us know.

Thank you.

I would suggest joining Rosegarden / Ardour mailing list - you can provide invaluable feedback and incentive
it's not only coder that contribute but documentors, beta-tester, or just general users requesting features.

There is a run-from-CD studio with all those applications: http://www.ferventsoftware.com/index.php
Now you don't need to buy but I wonder if they have their forums open too - basically they are very cutting edge
and possible the same programmers behind Rosegarden, etc.

About Gimp - that is a very refreshing statement.
Usually I argue with people because they think I am being a zealot when I say I personally prefer Gimp over Photoshop
(but they slag Gimp as being worse than Paint!)
I tell them that - first .. Gimp on Windows doesn't feel as nice as Gimp on Linux
and secondly .. its nothing but the learning curve, but when you get the hang of it (ie right-click to bail you out with options) ..

There are a lot of Windows software whose equivalent in Linux is still extremely behind (compare Corel Draw vs Inkscape/Sodipodi)
or (Dreamweaver vs NVU)

But Gimp is not one of them.

Lots and Lots of graphics resources here:

Foobar!!!


If not EAC, at least allow EAC's options in cdparanoia...or within grip.

I like cdparanoia command line to rip to pure wav and then to encode,I like;
for i in *.wav; do lame --alt-preset extreme "$i" "${i/%wav/mp3}"; done
That encodes all the .wav files to mp3 with the --alt-preset extreme switch.


I can do all of that through grip if need be.

If there were a bibliographic program that worked well with Open Office or Abiword, I think I good kick the MS-windows/word habit alltogether. I know there is a package available for use with Latex, but I still need to collaborate with people using word processors, so I can't move to the Latex world. Something like Endnote for Ooffice would be great.
