Whatever alternatives Open source offers, it pales in comparison to the paid ones.

Gimp Always loses to Photoshop.

MS office always functions better than open office.
Photoshop cs2 is cheap, cost S$1200+, if you can afford and with it, your rate of return is higher, then go for it.
Don't tell me you use illegal version? No piracy please.

Do you use basically all the features MS Office has? If yes, go get that.
For Office 2007 pro edition, it cost S$760.
No piracy please also.

Total damage: photoshop cs2 + office 2007 near to S$2k.

Good luck.

If you want to pay this much, no one's going to stop you.

Hi..

i would like to contribute a comprehensive list of of Windows-equivalent applications in Linux.

http://www.linuxrsp.ru/win-lin-soft/table-eng.html

I'm using kubuntu edgy 6.10.. getting those applications is easy using adept manger or simply apt-get install xxx

do let me know if there are any replacement applications you need..

Some games i've tested:
Maplestory under wine doesn't work..vmware can do the job though (not tested)
Warcraft and world of warcraft can run under wine..

Tried eye candy beryl on both ati and nvidia setup.. ati involves a little more work to set up..

but most of the time i'm using linux more on work and developing.. so games and eye candies doesn't really matter..

No wonder that player needs to shut down aero effects before it could work. SO it's a Open sourced freeware. No wonder.

Professional Audio:

Ardour - Dedicated, full-blown multi-tracker.

Wired - Throw away your Cubase when this matures.

Hydrogen - This is THE BEST free drum programmer in the whole wide world including M$ and OSX, although stable only in Linux (ahah! too bad!).

Rosegarden - Full-blown MIDI sequencer, can throw away Cubase liao.

LinuxSampler - Gigastudio? Hell yeah. Still very young, not even provided by some distros' repos.

JAMin - Mastering software, reputated for having rendered full albums along with Ardour.

And also for general-purpose recording, the popular and universal Audacity.

Lots of others: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_audio_software

Why mr waikiki? Because it provides one with more insight than a website
