    I'd like to see some more/better guitar effect apps ported over to Linux as I play bass and need some crazy effects from time to time. I don't care for any specific one whether its Guitar Rig or whatever. Guitar Rig has a mac port so it couldn't be hard for Native Instruments to get it on Linux. I refuse to run it in Wine too because I don't get native asio that way unfortunately.

    The second thing I'd like to see is some more games obviously. And then the third one, hmm.. I don't really need anything other than that.
    Hi

    If you want a good set of guitar/bass effects on linux you can test Rakarrack at http://rakarrack.sourceforge.net/ . This app have 10 effects and 80 predefined presets ... someones very crazys...

    Best regards

      I wouldn't go back to windows (on my home box) even if you payed me on a weekly basis.

        1. AutoCAD ( since BricsCAD: http://www.bricsys.com failed to deliver a version 7 and 8 for Linux )
        2. ETABS/SAP ( that code needs some optimisations badly, it's 20 years old in development, and it feels old too; no 3D acceleration, bad UI )
        3. Tekla ( given it's price tag and it's features this could be awesome to port )

        these are the apps that keep me on Windows, at job anyway

          2 - Auto Gordian Knot - can anyone pt out a current FOSS alt to this?
          3 - Matlab [although SAGE http://www.sagemath.org/ looks interesting]

            Matlab has a native linux client already[1] and as for Gordian Knot it's under the GPL so it's already FOSS and just needs to be ported.

                Honestly I think if there was someone interested in porting it would have been done by now as it's been around for a fair few years now.

                  Ya matlab has been native in linux for a long time, but although Gordian Knot is GPL, AutoGK is a separate project that is not GPL nor does the author show any interest in releasing the code.

                    I thought AutoGK was based on Gordian Knot, opps.

                      While I liked how simple AutoGK was, it never got my subtitles right, I always had to go an tweak them manually in a text editor. Compared to that, using mencoder is less work and also better results.
