My wish list for porting to Linux:

Nero is one, but for one reason only: When I try to create a VCD using SVCD files with VCD headers in K3B, K3B corrects them, and consequently they won't play on my DVD player.

Also TMPGenc. For the same reason. It seems to be the only program that will put VCD headers onto SVCD MPEG files. Programs like Transcode do everything by the book.

Of course I use Kino to make the SVCD files in the first place...

Other wishes:

Serif Photo Plus: Simply because it has a "Fix Red Eye" setting and GIMP does not... ok then it would be better if GIMP got a "Fix Red Eye" setting.

Serif Page Plus: To me this is the best DTP/Layout program bar none. Scribus is a struggle to use and keeps crashing on me. Also the onscreen display is not true WYSIWYG with Scribus, sometimes far from it. Actually I would rather the Scribus people took a look at features in Page Plus, just to see how simple DTP should be. Though at present I have found I can manage with writer!

What I'd like to see ported? Photoshop definatly. I know it works with Crossover, but it's slow and expensive. I'd also like to see Flash MX, and 3DS MAX.
(oh, hehe, subseven too please ;-) )

Thanks! I had heard of it before, never really found it because it's not on the proposed ftp of their homepage ... found it in a debian repository just now (decided that I needed to look harder )! I'm going to give it a try one of these days!

I would like Peachtree accounting to be available for linux. This seems like the only thing that i cannot change over so I still have a win machine. I have already spent over $300 for the software and tax updates. I have not looked into linux alternatives due to the fact that it has taken a lot of time to set it up and it would be a pain to have seperate book backups. I am not willing to take any chances using wine ,etc to run it a crash would be a major pain. I would be willing to pay 50 bucks or so to cross grade my existing product.

In case anybody here missed the /. story - some of your apps are now available under Linux.

Those of you wanting Flash MX / Dreamweaver MX might find this interesting...

Taken from Slashdot :

"It seems that CodeWeavers' CrossOver Office 2.1 now supports Dreamweaver MX and Flash MX. So for those who have been waiting to ditch MS Windows because of these two apps, now is your chance. The announcement from CodeWeavers can be found here and the changelog can be found here. The list of supported applications is also getting pretty impressive."

Cool - but as a Mod told me on page 1, this is a porting thread. Wine and Crossover Office (while both excellent programs) are an extra layer. Jeremy is asking for the progs we would like to see full linux ports of.

Thumbsplus is a great program that should be ported, but I doubt we will ever see a Linux version.

"Any plans for a Linux version?

Unless and until we work on a Linux version of ThumbsPlus, I would recommend vmware for running Windows applications on Linux. One thing that is bothersome about a Linux port is that so many of the Linux users who have written have exclaimed how wonderful it is to have a free operating system and free software (like Gimp). We could never afford to port to Linux and give it away! The investment required is enormous when you're looking at a code base of nearly a million lines of code. We're also not likely to pay any outside company or people to do it; although it is possible that we could *hire* someone. Bottom line, I wouldn't plan on seeing a Linux version of ThumbsPlus for quite some time."

wireless-g 54 mbps cards from linksys... the 10mbps 802.1 cards work, but i guess we're waiting for linksys to decide what to do about the GPL?

also an integrated e-mail / fax program would work great... maybe something that can use hylafax and sendmail in an integrated fashion.
