Interoperability, getting things that are mainstream on other platforms to work on Linux platforms

Like media, devices, software applications, networking tools.

Please post anything that currently does not work or that you want to work better on a Linux platform.

Please post anything you think that already does that deserves a mention or more attention.

I will do the same.

A Wish list

I would like to post a wish list.
If you know of answers to these please post them.

Simpe internet only linux distro.
Who needs any non-internet-enable app anyway. I would like to find a simple distro that only comes with a fully capable modern fully integrated internet browser, I don't a somewhat disabled internet browser, because of missing stuff, like flash, media player, gcc or some lib to interpret or compile it. Nor do I want a complex large distro that takes up a lot of space.
To be ported to Linux; Apple Quicktime, Adobe Air, Blueray, DirectX, etc...
Just some of the media types and graphic platform engines I would like to see developed to run native on the Linux platform.
Currently I run mplayer that plays an older Quicktime format but cannot stream the new Apple Quicktime movie format.
Also Adobe Air is not available. And Safari 4's Coverflow does not work at all. DirectX can be run using Wine but don't we all really want a native
DirectX solution?
Linux Information Services distro and Web 2.0 Bundle

A real MS Server killer for the I.T. guy who does not happen to be the Linux equivalent of Yoda, or Darth Sidious.
I would like to find a Free Open Source Linux bundle that comes complete and integrated with Web Server, Application Server, Content Distrubtion, EMail server, Security/encryption protocols, MySql, JavaEE, Flash, Python, PHP.
An Open Source Information Services bundle. Like fully integrated admin controls for TCP-IP V4 or V6, DNS, DHCP, VPN, Tunneling, Firwalls, full workstation/user permissions desktop profiles, integrated NFS, application server, MySql database server. Plus, ability to enable Server Clustering.
Capable of being added to any Linux Server, without having to bring together all the dependencies and working out of the system integration manually. An awesome install would take care of all that. Plus, Integrated Control Panel that optionally encapsulates or reveals any degree of complexity or logging desired. Also, one could sign up for updates.
Keep you posted,
