Deluge or Transmission should work great. There's no reason a client would be "slower" in Linux, that's usually a settings issue.

bittorrent GUI

Qbittorrent actually is a very good choice for GUI, speed, simplicity, low system footprint and efficiency

They already have. You can file your taxes online, through an enrolled provider. For pension plans, this is newly mandatory: as of 2009, IRS created the software so that now I go online directly to file, and no longer have to use an enrolled provider. So within two years or so, it will be mandatory for individuals, too. At that point you won't need an enrolled provider as a go-between.

Also, online banking allows you to download into popular accounting programs, like Quicken. Isn't there some Quicken version for Linux? I don't know, I don't do personal or corporate tax returns, but you can check with your accountant. There ought to be Linux-specific tax apps, 'out there'.

I wouldn't mind seeing some better GPS mapping software in Linux.
All of the good ones are in Windows.

As for games, I'd like to see AD Astra get ported over to Linux.

Is there a dictionary like Wordweb on Linux, or Wordweb itself.
I found it the best dictionary among all. I would love to see it on Linux.

I would like to see Windows 8 ported to Linux... Its sort of an application. Not really an OS anyway.

Dears Linux Questions:
The unique program that gots me catched to M$ is the CAD.
With the Lisp support I did incredible things.
Would be great if there were an Open Source Option.
I tried IntelliCAD but couldn't even make it start on Debian.

Try using a VM or Xwindow to hose those special needs..

You might want to look into using a VM product like Oracle's VirtualBox or similar Where you can run the CS/xx series inside a widow native to it's liking. This would keep you in one machine, or at least keep Linux ready on-the-fly for quick emails, etc. This has always been a hangup for me, in trying to get away from Bill Gates and his band of non-communicating programmers who continuously cripple other things trying to Patch an overlooked loophole a hacker got through.. Many, many times I've had to 'rollback' due to this oversight. I use the CS/3 Suite for the work I need & now it is having issues working in Windows 7 Ultimate, so now I'll have to create a vHDD in a XP SP/2 environment just to house that needed software.

Talking iTunes

I would like to see iTunes I have it on my windows ps . But I don't care fore using wine or vb. I would rather like to apt-get iTunes or go tote Ubuntu software option in 12.04 instead. You would think that it would be easy to port it from OSx instead. I like. My iPad and wish it could sync with my laptop/tablet pc too.
