    Default Top 3 application that you wish existed as Linux versions

    Let see if we all share the same opinion on this one. Lets pretend that Wine doesn't exist. What applications and programs would you miss the most from Windows?

    For me it is
    1. Spotify
    2. Steam
    3. Nokia PC suite


    But I don't miss IE. That's for sure

    Read the first message. Pretend that Wine doesn't exist. Wasn't expecting a moderator to break the forum rules

    or I am sure you can get it right now

    it is beta(you don't has a flash and some features) but it quiet stable and really quick

    wget http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/go...rrent_i386.deb
    or
    wget http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/go...rent_amd64.deb

    alien google-chrome-unstable_current*.deb google-chrome-unstable_current.rpm

    sudo alien -r google-chrome-unstable_current*deb

    mkdir ~/RPMS
    mv google-chrome-unstable_current*rpm ~/RPMS
    sudo zypper ar /home/user/RPMS localrepo
    sudo zypper in google-chrome-unstable

    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.

    Um, I didn't see any mod break the forum rules. Caf was saying that he
    couldn't think of any application that runs on Windows that he wants/
    needs ported to Linux.

    I'd go for the blackberry suite myself (barry doesn't work for me) and
    Moray. I'd also like to see some real support from Webex (they say it
    runs in Linux, but when I tried it last time, it said it couldn't
    identify the platform or version and refused to start - the fact that
    they only give you 5 minutes before a scheduled appointment to get
    everything working isn't a huge help, either).
