one of your DVDShrink links has me wondering if I can install it with Cedega....I'll have to give it a try.

I really want a Half-Life server montioring tool similar to www.HLSW.net ... I could care less if it launches the games, I just need all the other features.

HL2, CS:S, World of Warcraft or WC3, just the basic new games out there.

It would be helpful having programs like Dreamweaver, Flash, and Adobe Photoshop...but you know I guess I'm stuck with notepad for now :P

I just made the switch to Linux but I have to keep a windows box for one reason - Adobe CS. I do like the Gimp which I have spent a good amount of time learning to use, but unfortunately its functionality can't compete with Photoshop for professional use.

Incedentially I don't know if anyone talked about this (sorry I didn't actually read all the previous posts but I read that Adobe did toss around the idea of port to linux but found there was not enough interest to warrent the expenditure. Kind of hard to believe - It seems like everyone I talk to would make the switch completely if Adobe did.

Just wanted to cast my vote with the rest of the Adobe votes.

Hey, you are listing all windoze software :-(

Do you realy need win firewals on linux? No! You do not need antivirus because almost all trojan on xxx-websites and lovesan-like viruses are win32 oriented.

If you still think you need firewall, you have ipfw/iptables. All you need is to read some manuals!

All other listed software you can run on linux using wine. How to run it you can read on http://www.frankscorner.org/

I do not belive that ported Photoshop/CorelDraw will cost 10 times less than win32 version.


Look at this link before listing c:\program files\

Battlefield 1942 would be really nice, I run it with cedega but it isn't very stable and I would much prefer running it natively...

I am glad that I was able to get QuakeIII running with little difficulty. At LAN parties, I am the only Linux user, and my PC is by far the most stable game server.

The others I would like.

Warcraft III
Civ III

That's because most people used windows before, and the word "ported" implies something along these lines

This might change with increasing linux user numbers, so no argument here.

Well, as I said look at the word "ported", there is a diffrence between native and layer usage.

Neither do I, yet Linux wouldn't die because of some professional and therefor commercial software, I think Linux badly needs some of them because Linux should not only replace windows for personal use

These already work perfectly with Cedega...Most games Blizzard release are already tested with Cedega prior to release. Mainly because Blizzard makes MAC versions which is still unix based...www.transgaming.com

If you still think you need firewall, you have ipfw/iptables. All you need is to read some manuals!

You just posted the typical *nix bigot response: RTFM -- and that is exactly the attitude which holds Linux back, and keeps Microsoft at the helm. Sorry, that (RTFM) doesn't cut it for nontechnical folks.

Most of us here recognize that ipfw is far superior to practically any firewall on Windows ever will be, however, in order for Linux to gain market penetration, a GOOD GUI is required. The folks at Suse/Novell made some attempt at a GUI but I prefer the command line to Suse's administration GUI for both the firewall and for apache (to put it more bluntly: the suse GUI for administration SUCKS).

What is needed is better front ends. Webmin helps to bridge the gap, but for ipfw and for apache, webmin falls far short. Again, for those areas I prefer to use the command line to configure those daemons. That doesn't help Linux gain ground in the general marketplace - what Linux needs on the firewall side is to take the Cyberguard/Snapgear GUI and implement that as the default GUI for ipfw. It's easy to use, and at the same time lets sysadmins access nearly ALL the functionality iptables has to offer.

For now, I think it still is safe to say linux doesn't need as much virus protection as win32 or win64.

I'd love to see both Macromedia Studio MX and the Adobe Creative Suite ported to Linux. I'd quit Windows altogether were that the case (except for a game or two).

I am a web developer and I am working a lot with:

- Total Commander (it has a LOT of features and you can make a lot of shortcuts, it has ftp, syncronise dirs, etc).
- Homesite 5 (or I will use the Eclipse with the phpeclipse plugin, which is nice)
- Adobe stuff and Macromedia stuff - for the designer I work with

I am willing to pay full price for them.

Yeah, well, I see you're talking about difference between porting and emulating, and I must say, it would be quite enough for me if I could get Sony Vegas running in an emulator, like WINE, though I'm a newbie, and I would need help to do so. Please assist me if you can
