the best p2p, webpage editor, newsreader, other for linux

Ok, im running suse 9.0, and i can do everything i need on it but a few things that would really make linux perfect.. Ok,

I wanted to know the best, and more compatible programs there are for these categories:

1. P2P program (i gotta have my videos/music)
2. Webpage Editing (such as dreamweaver/frontpage)
3. Newsreader (espeically for binaries)

I am really missing the media aspect of windows, and i know that you could do all the same media stuff with linux as you can windows, but im at a loss of the best programs there are that collect the media!!! thanks so much!

I'm sure there's many opinions but...

Here's mine:

I dig bittorrent, and there are numerous clients for it on sourceforge- just do a search for bittorrent

limewire isn't too bad, but you'll need java runtime environment installed if you don't already

eDonkey/Overnet are pretty good, too

html editors:
I'm a text editor kinda guy so if you're looking for a dreamweaver clone, I'm not sure. I wouldn't wish frontpage on my worst enemy, however.

news reader:
I don't use that at all, so I'm no help there. Try linuxberg and sourceforge and see what you can find there.

PAN for a newsreader. Definetly.
WinMX for P2P but it's a Windoze program so try Xmule or go to and look around..;-)
