cd-dvd burning (like Nero)
You haven't even skimmed this board or read the stickies have you
Nope, you definitely haven't read anything on this board or any other when it comes to Linux. Well then!
Nero: K3b, xcdroast
C++ Compilers: G++, others
C++ IDE: there are MANY to choose from - too numerous to list here so I'll mention two: anjuta and kdevelop
You name it, Linux has it. pgp is tops though!
Actually, "rm" alone on some filesystems is secure. otherwise you could "dd" over the sectors. To be sure though, use "shred"
Spy-ware protection (similar to spy-bot search and destroy)
Why? Spyware targets MSIE on Windows. So far spyware removal is totally unnecessary on *nix and would be a waste of disk space.
Hard disk partitioning (like Partition Magic)
fdisk, qparted, parted
Again, too numerous to list so I will mention two of the top contenders: mplayer and xine
There are what - six viruses or so that target Linux and those exploits are for the most part nonexistent? Unnecessary. If you're referring to email antivirus, there's avgate and tons of others.
Thanks in advance. [/B][/QUOTE]
Try searching - you will find many, many references to what you're asking. I didn't even mar the surface above, let alone even scratch it.
