Easy use way of opening .DMG files(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Disk_Image). My macs are old and don't have internet access, I sometimes would like to look at a package before putting it on my Mac.

In all Linux alternatives I have tried these tasks are more cumbersome or less exact or require more clicks.
Also the menus for navigating folders ("save as" etc) are always more terrible, like you can not copy&paste paths, the windows are fixed size and very small. When you select an area for cropping you can not move it around but have to drag a new selection-rectangle, and so on. Small things like that..
I agree. Nothing I've tried is as good as Irfanview. I guess it would be up to its author to port it to Linux?

BTW I have to keep a Windows machine on the side, for running Irfanview and one or two other programs.

Every software available for other Desktop OSs but not Linux.
Especially daily use software like Internet Download Manager.

Look at imagemagick:
Examples:
Code:
mogrify -resize 400x400 file.jpg
convert file1.jpg -resize 50% file2.jpg
convert input.jpg -resize 300 -quality 75 output.jpg
montage -mode concatenate -tile 2 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 4.jpg out.jpg
convert file.png file.jpg
convert file.png -crop 640x480+50+100 out.png
convert -size 720x480 xc:blue canvas.jpg
About as simple and fast as it gets. And scriptable to do batch jobs.
See:
man convert
man montage
man mogrify

curl
wget
kget
aria2
axel
cclive
plowshare
nzbget
steadyflow
uget
you-get
youtube-dl
python urllib
python requests
etc......
Once again, simple, robust, scriptable, and in your repos.

Lightbulb Media Player

MediaPlayer Classic HomeCinema + BlackEdition.

There is already http://github.com/cmdrkotori/mpc-qt, but it is not complete.

There is also VLC Media Player, but VLC has no live framerate display, video bar tooltip and only restricted GPU decoding.

Of course, VLC also has tons of advantages, but I would like to see both.

Without a doubtů

Process Hacker 2 and Process Explorer.

They are similar, but some have features the other does not have. E.g. the latter one can kill processes from the edit menu, so after clicking on the process, you do not need to chase it with your mouse.

Website-Watcher (https://aignes.com), a program designed to monitor web pages with very customizable options and reports (intern scripts are even possible for the trickiest cases).
Currently, the supported OSes are all Windows (32-bit or 64-bit): Windows 10, Win8, Win7, Vista, XP.

Given that it supports XP, and therefore may not be too complicated, have you tried running it under WINE to see if it works there?

Thanks for the advice! I will give it a try as soon as I resolve some other issues on my Slackware

it has been said before, many times, but i'll say it again:
there's plenty of very capable media players for Linux.
i remember mpc, it was very good for windows, but there's simply no need for it under Linux.
fwiw, i use mpv, and for those that can't be without a fancy gui, there's smplayer which will wrap mpv or mplayer in just that.

also your other softwares seem to be of the kind that exist for Linux, just without GUI. try htop (and please refrain from informing us that it isn't exactly like those you mentioned).

all in all, using Linux is also a shift in paradigm:
you can achieve everything that you can with any other operating system, but maybe need to take a different path to do so.

a little scripting/configgering is easily learned and goes a loooong way into fulfilling one's own software wishes.

Ditto on SMPlayer, if one wants a nice GUI.
