Finale notation software. Since it's already available for MAC, it should certainly be doable.

Paltalk, messenger programs that can actually handle voice chat rooms instead of all the dozens of crippled messenger programs available for linux....

64bit flash

GUIs for popular classic computer and console emulators instead of them all using a cli interface that require typing two rows of commands EVERY TIME to get the emulator to load the game/file and options that I want.

Cubase, Pro Tools, the ability to use VST's and VST Instruments, and the ability to use RTAS effects.

Photoshop (or at least give the gimp some more options like replace color and selective color).

Autocad would be a nice port. I can't find anything that is close to it in the linux area.

AutoHotKey is great in Windows. We definitely need something like it for Linux. I want to switch to Linux totally but an old dog doesn't learn new tricks easily. Furthermore my productivity depends on being able to use the same keyboard layout in all my programs. Using AutoHotKey I can do that in Windows.

So far I have found nothing that enables me to do the same in Linux.

I need to be able to define multiple key sequences (like in many editors, e.g. Ctrl+k Ctrl+x)to act like a single key. For example I want to define "Ctrl+k Ctrl+x" to act like "Alt+f4".

Is there anything out there that will do this? Beter yet, is there anything like AutoHotKey?

excellent web app.

As we all know, Linux can have issues with various media formats. Therefore, utilities that convert from one to another are important.

There is an excellent site called This site converts practically anything to Linux avi formats as well as rm formats. This includes flv files from youtube and wmv files.

Therefore, we can use the multimedia software that Linux offers with more power and diversity then Windows in some cases. A broadband connection really helps with this as well.

The file size limit is 150 megabytes.

This really kicks some "tail" if you know what I mean. Since it is a web application, the OS is of little importance.

There may well be many other sites like that one. Web apps are appearing to play more of a role in life, especially since Google started to release all of its software for free.... & pay the bills.

Some kind of "just works" video card driver install program. You know, like Windows has. Linux and video cards are one big headache.

Have you tried Avidemux? It has similar functality for the work I've done with video.

:: Total Commander ::
Linux clons don't have even 10% of TC functionality

:: Foobar2000 ::
I tried: Mesk, Exaile, Banshee, Quodlibet - nothing is good enough. Even all together can't beat F2k

heh I was thinking the same thing:

Foobar2000 (although it does work with wine, it still has small glitches / annoyances: like the status bar not updating and audio skips when the CPU is busy)

Monkey Audio (not the converter but native support preferably in Xine or MPlayer) (reason why I'm still using foobar2000 on linux)

I whole heartedly second that - an excellent newsreader.
