    None, I wouldn't even miss all the games.

    But it would be good if libass had better support for special effects (like VSFilter) and Krita had the same or greater amount of features than The GIMP (just because I think that Qt 4 is better than GTK).
    I never finish anyth

    - Corel Draw (Gimp is as good as Corel for photo editing but not for image creation and Blender is not nearly as handy as Corel Draw)

    - My Garmin navigator driver!

    So i leave a Windows in 2 of my computers and boot lets say a couple of times a year when i need either of the above apps

    or
    wget http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/go...rent_amd64.deb

    1. Onetouch Diabetes Management software (would need a kernel module for the glucose monitor too)
    2. AudibleManager
    3. PowerShell (I know this is impossible since PowerShell is for Windows only, but it would be nice to have some sort of terminal shell in Linux that could also interface with Windows systems and provide all of the same features as PowerShell).
    My personal philosophy:
    The only way you won't find something is if you stop looking.

    I really hope you're kidding when you say this. If someone needs to use commercial Windows programs, it certainly doesn't warrant a derisive response like that.

    You start a Poll and then shoot the person for their honesty. It stops now or I'll shut it down.
