    Oh dang, they forgot to mention that it was a requirement, when they appointed me as Mod.

    Chrome is, in a way, like Linux to me.
    I want to use them, and I enjoy using them, but my most important add-ons or applications live else where.
    As in Firefox and Windows.

    Well luckily I didn't really use any addons in FF besides Tamper Data, Firebug, and FoxyProxy. Two of which have Chrome equivalents. And I don't miss Tamper Data all that much.
    As for switching from Windows to Linux..I miss a couple games I can't get to work. Notably Mabinogi (it used to but the update doesn't) and Polygon Love 2. :d Shh. Most of the rest of the games I play either work or are Flash or something. At least WoW works. <3

    Well duh that's the only way you can possibly get anything Windows running, it just doesn't have enough support for some of the games I play.

    Have you ever tried to get Photoshop to run in Wine?
    I have, and it is a total pain.
    I abandoned that idea and installed Virtualbox.
    Which resulted in me still using XP.
    And what about Internet Download Manager.
    Those are two apps that have no equals out there, open source or otherwise.
    And I refuse to settle for lesser apps, when all I need to run them is to just stay with XP.
    Yeah, I prefer Ubuntu to XP, but not enough to sacrifice Photoshop and IDMan.

    Also, Notepad++ didn't like Wine very much. And as far as I'm concerned, it has no equals, either. Although, gedit and Kate are decent editors.

    I like gedit, and they'll be adding code folding to it soon which is the only thing I miss from Notepad++
    I'm not a graphics editor so I don't really care about Photoshop. :P And the only download manager I use is JDownloader cause it bypasses free hosting download stuff so I can queue them. And if it wasn't obvious by the name, that's a Java program, so it works anywhere there's a Java VM.
    Virtual Box is pretty much crap though since it doesn't access any of your hardware directly. I mean, I understand it needs to be in a box blah blah, but they should at least give you the option of letting it directly access your damn graphics card so I can run games in it. :|

    This is the world pole that opera is the fastest browser in the world but at the same time people likes Firefox for daily routine and they also use it with love because the facilities are provided in Firefox is awesome comparatively.
