Port to Linux

WordPerfect. There is an old version for Linux, but I can't get it to work. I have years of old client files in WordPerfect. It would be nice to be able to access them from Linux. I would use nothing but Linux if it was compatible with my old WordPerfect files.

I would also like to have a Linux hearts game. Please don't send me a gazillion replies asking why.

wanted to add:

Sonar 4
Acid Loops
Pro tools

While I know great things are being done with Rosegarden, Ardour, Jack, LADSPA, etc... these are some really good music creation programs.

seems safe to say that there are many people who want the steam/valve games and alot of macromedia products so i cant see as they have an excuse not to port those unless there are some patient nastys going about

Nero has come out with a linux version that seems to work much better than k3b. I haven't been able to record anything except iso's with k3b. Currently I can record cd-r and cd-rw. I am excited about trying out both dvd recording formats (-r/rw and +r/rw). Please pass this along and post it for all to see! This is great! the website to download this wonderful program is

I'll have to check it out. When it was released a couple months ago(not sure how long ago) it required Nero6 key, so it wasn't worth it to many to buy Nero6 for windows only to get Nero for Linux.
I haven't had any problems with K3B. It does everything I've needed so far, but I liked Nero in Windows so I want to give this a try.

edit: Not impressed...couldn't even burn a cd image. I'm happy with K3B so I'll stick with it. I've read good things about Nero used by others, but it doesn't work for me. Oh well.

Windows and Mac OS would be cool
