Hello gurus, As I posted the Guide for those ready to make the switch to Linux gaming thread, it was obvious that for those wanting to make the switch, software, or the lack of what to use for* is holding them from taking the plunge. Therefore, I create this thread where to post useful, GUI software alternatives needed in Linux for every task is needed. One cay say that I could post that information in my previous thread, and it would be both right and wrong. Right, because it involves software for Linux, wrong because it will generate discussions who will derail the thread from its proposed trajectory. I'll post whatever software I know and use day in, day out in my Linux computer and add some more that could be useful. However, every guru is invited to post information meaningful for this thread.
