Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I would love to see Photoshop on Linux. I'd pay money for that! I know GIMP is cool and all, but it still doesn't match Photoshop for features. I would say Photoshop is the single proprietary software I know of which is worth every dollar it costs (unlike a certain brand of proprietary x86 operating systems, which isn't worth the price of the little discs it comes on).
Photoshop exists for OS X (which is cool), but I can't afford a Mac...
I would like to see competing products to MS Streets and Trips, as well as Age of Empires and Age of Mythology. I would really like to see a version of intellisync that runs on linux so maybe we could sync our Zaurus devices.
Originally posted by jnicol ps. Emagic has already stopped the support on Windows platforms, and the forthcoming versions of the product will be only supported on Mac's.
As far as wave editing programs Linux has plenty!
Tell me about it! LOL
Yeah, small wave file editors are plenty, but there are no mature (or even stable to the point where you can use it professionally) hardware recording environments. Such as waste when many professional and semi-pro soundcards are supported through Alsa.
On the other hand, Apple does distribute Shake for Linux...and Logic's native platform now is OSX, which is a BSD-derived OS. I realize the kernel is very different in OSX and Linux, but could porting Logic to Linux really be that hard?
As a screenwriter, I have one addition to the list: Final Draft. I hate having to bother with adjusting margins and whatnot in OpenOffice, etc. It gets in the way of telling the story. Also, FinalDraft had some really nice features that a normal word processor doesn't provide (name database, scene notes, revisions, etc.)
Dragon Naturally Speaking or at least
I need that desperately. IBM (Via Voice) seems to have canceled their Linux-engagement. As long as there is nothing
similar to Dragon on Linux I continue using Windows.
I really do.
The Blizzard Serries
ATI Drivers that aren't in the fux0ring .RPM format
Drivers for PDAs such as Toshiba, iPaqs, and Dells (not everyone can afford those damned crappy Zauruses)
