    Linux version of your Favourite App

    If commercial software developers ported to Linux your favourite app, so that you could buy and run it natively on Ubuntu (or any Linux distro), what license would they use?
    As I become more familiar with Ubuntu, I become less dependent on Windows.

    Depends too on whether the source code is open.

    I do not have favourite apps in another OS than Linux.
    I am very happy with Gimp, Blender, Smile, Firefox, Thunderbird, Avidemux, Cinelerra, OOo, Audacity, Devede, Handbrake, QCAD, ... .

    I have no idea what you're asking. But it is possible to release proprietary, closed-source applications for Linux.

    uhhhhh WINAMP!!

    i agree with the post above, but not for music. i've tried every music program out there and i really miss winamp. XMMS is not the same.

    Not sure what you're asking exactly, but an open-source equivalent to Sony Vegas Video would be greatly appreciated here. Linux-based professional-level digital video editing software still seems to be in need of development, although digital audio software has come a long way...

    I would have to say Adobe Premier, and the software for the Play Globecaster.
