virtualdub: best freeware EVER

The best freeware program ever made is windows only, namely virtualdub.

I would really, really like to see a decent, simple videoeditor for linux, in the past few days i have been trying to find one for gentoo, and NONE of them works. They are all crap compared to virtualdub !!

For good reason ~90 % is masked in gentoo !!

Yep, this is my definitely my biggie as well. I could care less about any of the other software.

***I don't want ANYTHING ported to Linux!!***

I want people to make good open-source alternatives. For example, Linux needs more games but we don't need DirectX ported to Linux; we need video cards that fully support OpenGL and games that use it etc.
But there are a few closed "standards" that we would need to depend on the company to make open-source, like Flash / Shockwave. Flash on Linux sucks because Macromedia are being jerks and won't open it up...

3. ITunes or Music-match Jukebox for linux
4. A microsoft access equivalent
5. More drivers for linux -- and make it easier to configure hardware
6. More games for Linux

Add me to the photoshop list, that is the whole reason I still have a computer running windows. I would be willing to pay up to $300 for it.

Considering that Photoshop for other platforms goes for over $500, I doubt you're going to see Photoshop for Linux at $300 or less. You might see Photoshop Elements for less, but Photoshop Elements is the diet coke of image editors.
