Okay...if I may break away from the Windows debates and actually use this
group to help promote Linux :)
In an effort to help promote Linux, some of the questions that will always
need to be answered are "I can do xxx under DOS/Windows, can Linux do that?"
Being a part of the Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts, I would like to be able to have
some sort of a list made up of different situations like this, such as:
DOS: I use DOS for Lotus to keep track of my checkbook, can I do that under
Linux: You can run Lotus 1-2-3 under the DOS emulator, and keep it exactly the
same, or you can use sc, or xsc under X-Windows.
DOS: The only thing I really use my PC for is drawings under Paintbrush under
Linux: Use xpaint, or ...
DOS: I use Procomm for Windows to connect to our machine at work and work from
home, while listening to a CD in the back ground, writing postscript
documents, and playing around with this new Microsoft printing language
(sorry...had to make fun of Microsoft/DOS users belief that MS make it all :)
Linux: Use Seyon/Minicom, workman, ghostscript and TeX. You may even want to
look into SLIP/PPP.
DOS: I have this game called DOOM... :)
You get the idea...
Anyone. Most of mine were basically DOS programs that could be run under
Linux or had equivilants. Couldn't think of any harder examples.
