The Linux community needs to get the word out that there
ARE many applications available for Linux.

“If we look at Patrice’s needs:

  1. edit MS Office documents for work
  2. ray tracing
  3. drawing
  4. playing with children CDRom”

    “Linux can clearly satisfy at least the first three (StarOffice,
    PovRay/Blender, Gimp), and while some of the children’s CD titles
    would probably run under Wine there is currently a dearth of
    educational titles for Linux.”
