  • 3 windows apps that you would like to see ported

    OK, lets see what Windows only apps you would love to see ported to linux. In my list there is really only one big app that I would like to see ported and a couple of smaller ones that IMHO still do not have a good linux substitute.

    1) 3DStudio Max
    2) AutoGK
    3) Ultraedit

    1. Trackmania United: Forever (getting it on my birthday next tuesday, I so love the Trackmania series)
    2. Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (coming 2008)
    3. Grand Theft Auto 4 (2008)
    (4. Valve's games - I trust Michael on that one, so it got lower priority)

      Avid Media Composer.
      Final Draft.

      Those and games are the only things I have to keep a Windows box for; Celtx is OK for script-writing and has some nice features, but it still isn't as convenient as Final Draft.

          Apps, not games, apps. not SDK's, apps.

            1. SolidEdge - I have a windows install eating up hard drive space because I have to use it.
            2. Foobar - Awesome music player although I'm starting to like MPD+GMPC/NCMPC more and more.
            3. Other then games? Nothing

              at this time i cannot find a real app that hasn't a real counterpart on linux and that i regularly use.
              as for the apps that i use sometimes i'd say:

              adobe photoshop -> this is a real need for linux and if this will in some way be made available to linux users in a good way then it will mean a lot of new users

              now i cannot find any other apps and this could mean something, or not?!

                  None. There's everything I need already in the open.

                      Photoshop CS2 works well enough in Wine/Crossover Office that it is usable for my needs. YM, of course, MV. If you haven't tried it under Wine lately it's worth updating and giving it a shot. However, if you are for some reason tied to CS3, or perhaps some third party plugins, you're still OOL.

                        wine needs a videoboard that supports it well. i'm always a fast upgrader of wine (as soon as it hits portage or sabayon tree it goes also in update). the real problem stands in the opengl part of my board not being well supported (opengl is really crappy on x200m if you're able to have it work and not hang the system) so anything that is opengl based, including wine cannot be rendered. i'm using a virtualbox base windows just to be able to use iexplore (i have to go sometimes on sites that embedd activex controls for confirmation and this drives me so mad everytime that i do it that i'd like to kill the webmaster). i know that wine is making a lot of progress but still it needs a videoboard that is able to work with it. and still cs3 doesn't work.
                        i hope that project air would bring a lot of cool news about adobe stuff in the near future, like a 64bit flash plugin and an ability to write apps that work with its software.

                          allaroundautomations' pl/sql developer - a must have tool for anybody using oracle databases in production environment (opensource alternative tORA is ok, but it has a different approach to the task and lacks some features).

                          oh and most likely adobe's flash development suite. it might work on wine, or not but linux really lacks some of adobe's flagship products.
