Adobe Premier Pro

linux has virtually no proffesional digital video editing programs (except for kino or cinelerra). I would really like to see Adobe Premier Pro ported to linux.

This might br slightly off base, but OpenOffice is very nice, but lacks a database application. Does anyone know of a solid, easy to install, simple to learn and operate database application for Linux similar to Access (or better?)

I'm a web developer. I've been a web developer for 5 years. I've never used Dreamweaver, and never will. Dreamweaver (and other table-based/wysiwyg web design apps) are a nightmare, and the reason I can't find a job. I code in standards-compliant, accessible xHTML and CSS. I'm a proper web developer. I don't use tables for design, I don't use "spacer" gifs, and I don't use a program which takes away the decisions. If you want to do web design, then learn it. Learn about cross-browser incompatabilities/inconsistancies. Learn about UI design. Learn about information architecture. I have, and I can't find a job because some kid who's done a six week course in Dreamweaver will work for half my wage and do a bad job.
I also try to keep to conformant XHTML code even XHTML Strict 1.1
See I quite like Dreamweaver though to quickly browse through a code - though I abhor any WYSINWYG app specially on "view" mode.
Using Dreamweaver text mode is quite handy (I'd never use the 'Visual' pane)
But since (unfortunatelly) many of my apps for customers are based on .NET I end up using Visual Studio .. but I split XML and XSLT.

If only I knew PHP and SAXON then I could start making apps 100% Linux based.

I know Linux has some interesting HTML editors and even some text-editors inteligently highlight syntax be it HTML or even C++ code.
That is all I need - coloured tags and definitely (very hard to find) - an XHTML formatting/identing option.

netstumbler, counterstrike, quake3, paperport, dragon natural speaking, Textaloud MP3, Att Natural Voices speech engine, leechget, PGP, Pcom-Link Manager (or any snmp managing software), Karlnet (wifi stuff), winamp (or more functionality on XMMS), photoshop, dreamweaver, sonic foundry products, something that is compatable with microsoft Outlook .PST files
so people could have no excuses not to switch OS's, better Tv Tuning software and HdTV recording software, Stream ripping software so linux can take advantage of codecs designed to only work with windows. A proxy service or some kind of program that you can make alinux firewall out of that shows you real time if one of your windows machines on your lan is secretly connecting to microsoft, There should be the most "Ultimate Real Time" network monitoring software on earth for linux.

More to come

.. MAYBE A UNIVERSAL programming language so that from now on, ALL software that is written for windows works on linux as well.

I dont know if it's been mentioned but i would love to have sonicstage for linux. I would be happy to pay for it, a reasonable amount of course

for those that do not know what it is,'s for downloading mp3s and atrac files to a minidisc player. Sure mp3 players are the rage but i am stuck with a mini disc player in the car for now.

I think that two essencial tools for industrial design are a good vector graphics software and a 3D modeling CAD software.

For each category I use Freehand and Solidworks respectively.

I think that instead of porting this software, there should be good open source alternatives (when I say good, I think about GIMP or Blender 3D)

Solidworks is the most sophisticated so I doubt we'll soon see something like it from the open source community.

I know there's some alternatives to freehand, but their performance is light years away from freehand's.

Anyway if someone is interested in starting a project or knows something related to this already in development, I would gladly like to be of help if there is need for someone in the graphics division.

Photoshop 7 runs on linux now with codeweavers crossover. I installed a borrowed copy recently just to try it and see if it would work. But I uninstalled it and prefer Gimp anyway :-) More features in PS, but I'm used to Gimp...

Office 2000 and I think XP also run under crossover, so that's a way things can go - a common interface for windows software, esp if MS start breaking things and compatibility when longhorn comes along. Crossover (&wine) by then might be just as compatible with the older software :-)

Have you tried with MySQL, it is very simple to install.

Here is a short howto
1, set up Mysql
2, install the MySQL Connector/J
3, install, or reconfigure Openoffice ( with the "..OpenOffice.org1.1.2/program/jvmsetup" script)
4, that just press F4 in OpenOffice and add the database accordingly

Thats it
