    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

    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.
