    Very useful information! I wonder if these equivalents can work on windows.

    Jackie.....I do know GIMP and open office can be used on windows I'm sure there might be a few others.

    I would suggest under mp3 taggers, you add musicbrainz picard tagger :) It fingerprints the song and matches it to a database of similar fingerprints online to tag the song.

    Great list, thanks for sharing! =) I just wanted to let you know that Picasa works flawlessly under WINE on my 64bit Ubuntu 7.10 machine, so I didn't have to find a replacement for it. Hehe.

    Hi All!



    jackie, I'm sure that some of them can... :) I've got your idea about word equivalent and sumbol <=> ;)



    Das Clown, thanks!



    chris, musicbrainz rocks! :)



    Brian, you might be interested in Picasa for Linux, download it here..

    This is a great list! I've been looking for some Windows alternatives since making the jump to Linux a few months back, and this list gives me some options to complete the migration :D

    you might want to remove Picasa from the list... or at least add it on the linux side as well.

    AutoCad qcad perhaps?

    Alternatiiva para ACDSee faltó GTKSee: http://gtksee.berlios.de


    "GTK See is a simple image viewer based on GTK+ 1.2.x and running on X Window System. The appearance and interface are similar to popular image viewer ACDSee, that is where the name "GTK See" come from."

    Plus:

    ACDSee -> gthumb

    CDex -> serpentine

    Google Desktop Search -> Tracker

    Windows Media Player -> Totem



    But there are dozens of programs more to mention, like Muine, Beep Media player, Gossip, Banshee, empathy, goobox, hipo, mcatalog, ... and much more.

    Funny about Picasa. Even though I'm running 2.2 under WINE, it still says Picasa for Linux on the about page. ;)

    Great thanks to everybody! List is upgraded now. Any changes or advices are still welcome! :)
