    Default 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?!
