Install the OOo ( suite and check out "Base" which is very much like M$ Acce$$.

3D graphics? Povray. Blender. Or, if you have the dough, Maya ( Maya ROCKS - I have clients who use it (on OS/X and a couple in render farms I set up for them and they LOVE it. They previously used other products.

High end video? Hmm, cinelerra is out there, I had it running before but now I CANNOT get the latest snapshots to compile (I've tried on multiple systems), so now I am looking for a usable NLE solution again; Cinelerra was nice when I had it. Fortunately I haven't had to deal with an NLE project since I rebuilt my system so I haven't had to resort to a Windows solution yet.

Winampp: I think that they should port winampp, because, it is really good software. I like it because of all the music, and, its free!

As an audio engineer Pro Tools, Cubase, and many common VST pluggins. Well maybe not Pro Tools. Awesome program but the ONLY reason I started using Linux was because I was not totally satisfied with any particular audio software or opperating system. Ardour is the best overall program I've ever found for audio. If Dolby or any other surround company would write a 5.1 Encoding pluggin I wouldn't care about anything else being ported. That's all I need!

This thread is getting long but I guess I'll put my thoughts in...

I would have to say AutoCad for sure... I have tried many Linux based CAD programs and none really come close... I did do some beta for Intellicads (so called) linux version of their latest CAD app, but it run's in Wine and to me that is not a Linux app... It's not a bad program but they need to have a native Linux version...

I know AutoDesk does not release a Linux version because it's just not profitable for them... but as Linux becomes more prevelent maybe they'll get of their butts...

Some big name companys have already ported their printed circuit board apps to Linux!
The top of the line is Mentor Graphics.
and number 2 Cadence Alergo.
What these company have found is that to stay at the top of the list they need to have a Linux port.
The compans who don't want to port the software don't want to be at the top and
will settle for the bottom.

Have not seen the whole thread, but I would like windows games (w/o using Cedega, which I use by the way), it would be nice if game makers would begin to gear their games toward Linux natively. I would be willing to pay what I paid buying windows based games.

If someone mentioned this already, then please forgive this post.
