There was also Free Toad (like in free toad sloth ), but I cannot find it now.

Chances are, I would not be here, if there had not been Toad ...

Edit: I am aware of the fact that you do not need Toad to do anything that Toad does. But you know why I want this tool if you have ever used any one of its incarnations.

Top Software Topdraw

I had bought a license for this vector graphics tool. If there were still any installers available, I am sure it ran in Wine. On first glance – and according to my memory – it looks like a scaled-down version of Inkscape, in features closer to some .*Office “Draw”.

What I liked about the program and would like to have again is, that manipulations which are nowadays covered – in Inkscape – by a combination of several commands and fine adjustments, had been accessible by a single click. For example a line of morphed versions of a picture was created by altering an initial shape until it corresponded to an intended final stage. The number of intermediate steps was the only variable.

The program was in no way close to “professional”, but very efficient for the swift creation of vector-graphics. SVG did not even exist, I believe.

I rarely use anything besides native linux apps, but i guess Ableton Live is the first one that comes to mind.

Linux does not need that to work at all. Most all linux distro .iso images are bootable. There are also live DVD/iso's that will boot, and are made for troubleshooting, penetration testing, etc. Linux has a glut of them. You can also make a bootable image from the installation that you are using. You can also remaster an existing .iso.

Look at
dd
grub
grub-legacy
syslinux
systemd-boot
efistub
lilo

Isn't the point of YUMI to boot multiple .isos from one stick?
I'm pretty sure there's some Linux software that does that. Ventoy? I might be wrong, I never use that stuff.

Ubootin, Ventoy, E2B (Easy-2-Boot), and a half a dozen others. Each has advantages and disadvantages, but all are powerful and useful tools. None of them are QUITE as "new muggle" easy as SARDU or YUMI on Windows. SARDU now has a semi-commercial version for both Windows and Linux that has free for non-commercial use licensing. (Pro $$$ for Commercial use.) I recommend fully open-source solutions over commercial.

The latest E2B actually makes use of Ventoy code, and Ventoy can be set up to handle both EFI and traditional boot situations. They are the solutions I use and recommend today. I have yet to discover any advantage the commercial tools offer.

Linux multiboot apps are too technical or inaccessible, and the results aren't as polished. The YUMI tool uses SYSLINUX and GRUB, and nothing I've seen in Linux can touch it.

I'm also from the perspective of converts from Windows and Apple, not the technical world.

User-friendly is key.

I disagree, but it may be a matter of taste. I find E2B and Ventoy far easier than anything Windows based, and Ventoy can be installed from Windows, linux, or virtually any other operating system. I find it simple, because I only need to copy an ISO to load a new distribution to my Ventoy key. There is no install step! The only technical steps I need are to set up persistence, whici is not even an option under most Windows only tools.

Perhaps there are polish and accessibility factors we evaluate differently. If they ever do port YUMI and SARDU over to Linux let me know and I will take a look.

This is always the same story, probably has been repeated a thousand times on this thread alone.

I prefer to be an empowered user, not a pampered user.

Linux distros come with repos. Almost all linux software has man pages, help pages. Also online man pages.

Code:
man cp
cp --help
apropos cp
man -k cp
man -t cp | ps2pdf - cp.pdf
man -P cat cp > cp.txt
man cp | groff -mandoc -Thtml > cp.html
man -Hfirefox cp
https://www.mankier.com/1/cp
https://www.manpagez.com/man/1/cp/

Online forums
https://www.linuxquestions.org/linux...ything_With_DD

Software descriptions, the devs own web pages, github with the source code.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/List_of_Applications

You just aren't familiar with linux and open source yet.

I had a sudden thought. I am not sure what it would take to get the permissions and line up the effort, but the public educational software library, including the entire MECC volumes. An updated and *nix friendly Oregon Trail that was historically correct would be killer. rRight now there is such an animal, but only for those little fruit machines. (Lemon, Apple, Watermellon, whatever...)

I'm more social/societal and care about Linux's share of the pc user base and less about technical niches or judging individuals. A user can still empower themselves with a lot of custom choice, but it needn't be an enormous time/energy strain after scaling a wall.

Be better than Windows and accessible. It's not that difficult.
