For any of you that are trying to wean from frontpage to a linux based program, I took Vincebs's advice and downloaded N-vu yesterday. It installed flawlessly and works great. I still have not figured out the cascade end of the program, but I am sure I will in due time. If you want a very easy to use WYSIWYG HTML editor, then I would suggest this one. Thanks

No problem Keep in mind that since it's still beta software, the final version will be much better.

Logic audio...

Linux, unfortuantely, is getting left behind by the other OSes when it comes to professional audio software.

Now that Mac have bought the publishers Emagic I'm crossing my fingers they produce a Linux version of it...

sorry blimbo I have to disagree with you here I use linux at home in my home studio and also in the studio's at work........once you get into the power of "Muse" (cakewalk sonar for linux) and "Audacity" (cool edit for linux) you wont like the windoze way ......on the original question...I only have windoze to run a few games which are supported by WineX...I have just been to busy to work it all out......that is of course only at home.....I dont play games at work honest hehehehehe

Oh also in the office there are about 15 machines all running different versions of Linux and BSD......we are a Multimedia Studio group...and we like experimenting...and we have already converted a few of our internet cafe usuals over to the linux the room. ......most of these machine are dualbooted with win2k but it has been months since I have seen windows actually runing at work

Unfortunately the only reason I boot into windows lately is for video processing software - although linux has come a long way, it's still not up to par in the DVD / DV processing world. Although mencoder, ffmpeg, etc. are becoming very evolved, all linux software that I've tried for converting a full DVD to MPEG-4 is plagued by audio sync problems. Plus the windows/VFW interface for XviD is updated much more frequently than mencoder or any of the linux interfaces.

kpex....yep you will run into lots of audio sync probs unless you use a multimedia kernel (they usually have mm at the end of their name)...we use cinelerra (no-linear) for most of our video work...but a must have is the mm kernel.

corp wireless requires tkip, which I can't get working reliably under 2.6.6 yet.
corp VoDs only work in media player.
outlook. yes, bad, but only one that offers organizer, good ldap lookup (evolution fails here), reminders, categories (400+emails per day).
WINS lookup. haven't found an elegent way to get linux to also use WINS lookup for default name resolution.

getting less daily. 2.6 kernel hotplug has helped tremendously.
other big hitters:
firefox (java apps like Oracle java initiator)
aironet wireless mpi support in the kernel

linux is making great progress toward easier to use, while still customizing low level bits.

People who do it b/c they like it (GPL) do it faster, simpler, cleaner, than those doing it for $ (m$).

blast me for not thinking about it ahead of time, but my sony netMD mp3 player doesn't have any linux analogs yet,
so i'm stuck right now using a p1 166 running win2k to do my mp3 transfers. since I got my ps2 i basically told windows to kiss it.

reason that i dual boot my computer is so that i can try out linux versions first before i go and change the version which is on my home server. Works well, + gives me an idea of all the different types of linux around.

i can't mount my portable mp3 player in linux. nzb file support for usenet in linux is also very lacking.

What do you use for newsgroups? In Windows I love newsbin but I haven't found anything decent in Linux that assembles the files and lets me set it and leave it alone as it downloads several at a time.

windows - newsbin
linux - pan and newsbin via wine. newsbin through wine has a lot of glitches imo.

I have to use it to connect to the VPN at work from home when I get beeped at night. I also use it to use Dreamweaver and Fireworks. Oh and when I take a DVD and put it onto VCD I need windows..... Of course I don't do that so much that I'm out of college and have a job (hence, have some spare cash). Of course that is all at home. At work there are a lot of things I need it for. We have software written that requires windows and there is no alternative what so ever. I work at a hospital so some of this software is not something you can get at a store or order online for a few bucks.

also at work we have 1000s of word documents that we use for "Policies and Proceedures". Not a single one of those displays right in Open Office..... Not one.
