    • Visual Studio, because I use VB.NET for work and most of my programming experience has stemmed from a BASIC background. I have tried Monodevelop and three things come to mind... it's orientated to C# (which I am using to learn C#), doesn't include GUI building tools for VB.NET applications and it isn't as feature-rich which is good when getting started out.
    • Paint.NET has a wonderfully easy UI while maintaining a powerful image editing capabilities and the closest thing I've found to the easy UI is Krita, but since you asked for Windows applications I grabbed this anyway. Right now on my work computer I have Gimp and Paint.NET.
    • So far SQL Server management Studio is one of the few easy database managers I've run across. Is there one that will do MySQL, Postgres, SQL Server, DB2 and/or Oracle which provides not only sql script writing but navigation and actions of database objects? Aqua Data Studio, unfortunately, last I know is paid-for but the closest I've seen.
    • MS Office (2007) has some nice features and tools to make things easy plus the UI is more pleasing than OO.org. For example, I can highlight a section and mouse over different heading styles and the page will preview what it will look like with that style. It does not stick until I click on it but being the visual person I am I like the easy preview without click.. cntrl+z (undo).. find.. click another.. cntrl+z.. etc.
    • Yeah, I've heard Google Sketchup runs via Wine alright, but the title of this is "application that you wish existed as Linux version" and I'd prefer a native Linux version over a Wine version. Come to think of it, wish Picasa was a native Linux version too!
    • Flash development is in part because a friend of mine is a heavy Flash developer and I know I can't get him to look at Linux until this tool exists. "May" be able to entice his 3D side with Blender (and a lot of beer) but no-Flash development is a deal-killer for him.


    That being said, except for my work laptop there are no machines at home that run Windows. I am
    • currently trying to use Monodevelop and teaching myself C# though the book I'm using isn't the best
    • getting used to Gimp/Krita for images,
    • haven't done much with databases yet but looking at trying SQL Sharp GTK and MySQL Workbench when I get the chance, phpMyAdmin and phpPgAdmin(?) are alright I guess
    • use OpenOffice.org extensively and trying KOffice as well, KOffice Writer works nicely with text frames so I hope that it may be good enough to replace Publisher for the few jobs we do with that, and Base is getting better though is still a long ways to go.
    • going to try Google Sketchup via Wine when I am able to
      and
    • waiting for a good Flash dev app to work in Linux.


    Oh, and I weigh heavier than a duck too!

    Just because you believe it is a bad choice doesn't mean it is for
    others. In a corporate situation sometimes office is just easier when
    dealing with people and places that use it exclusively and won't even
    look at alternatives. Not sure why using the best tool for the job you
    need to do makes someone a heretic but I guess you can start labelling
    me as one since I use OS X, Windows and Linux with Office on both
    Windows and OS X.

    As for me, I'd say:
    1. GSAK
    2. Garmin Mapsource
    3. FreeScan

    I haven't been able to get anything but bcharge to work. My blackberry
    is an 8700, which seems to be less well supported....honestly haven't
    spent a lot of time trying to get it to work, though.
