This is my first post on this forum: Greetings to all of you guys!

I would like to see:

Steinberg's Cubase SX
Emagic's Logic

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!

And of course a second one would be Photoshop. I like the Gimp but I still can't wing myself from not using Photoshop for graphic editing/creation needs.

I second that

Gimp and Blue fish work but its just not the same

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.

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?

I would love to see Quicken and NewsRover. I know for Quicken I can use Gnucash, I've tried it, its not as good. For NewsRover I could use something like Knewsl but NewsRover is far better.

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.)

Smile Dragon

Dragon Naturally Speaking or at least
Dragon Dictate.
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.

Turbo Tax

I forgot these two in my eairler post. Though the chances of Visio are slim to none since M$ now owns it.

Game's I'd like to see official ports for:

The Blizzard Serries
Illusion Games
Rockstar Games

Macromedia Products
ATI Drivers that aren't in the fux0ring .RPM format
Music Match
Drivers for PDAs such as Toshiba, iPaqs, and Dells (not everyone can afford those damned crappy Zauruses)

That's about it for now
