Welcome to the Linux Resources Software Wish List

As Linux becomes more popular and its user base grows, many people find themselves using a wonderful operating system, but are missing a few of the software packages that they know and love (or are just accustomed to).

Thus, the Linux Resources wish list is designed to provide the Linux Community with an easy way to tally a list of software and hardware that they would like to see ported to Linux. The results of this survey can be used when contacting vendors. Each vote submitted will be used to provide the proof that many vendors need to assure them that their product(s) have a market in the Linux OS.

What is Listed Here?
