    Lightbulb Linux Equivalents to Windows Software

    So you just switched from Windows to Linux and you're looking for an app that takes care of Adobe's Products, Nero, Outlook, Office, and so on. Or you are thinking about making the switch but you're just not sure if the software you use has an equivalent in the Linux world.

    This site takes care of all the guess work. It lists many of the popular Windows applications and the offerings that Linux provides.


    For example, let's say you shake and bake with Ahead Nero Burning ROM, and you're wanting a similar software for your Debian, Suse, Gentoo, Mandriva, or Ubuntu installation.

    Well, you have a choice here. Try them all until you find the one that meets your own personal taste:

    For Nero equivalents you can try:
    Bonfire/Brasero
    GnomeBaker
    Graveman
    K3b
    NeroLINUX
    X-CD-Roast

    Be sure to check out the site:
    http://linuxappfinder.com/windows

    Quite a few to choose from.

    Nice find BB. I want to tell folks about another alternative for FTP. Fire FTP is a Firefox extension. It is easy to configure, is always available with a right click of the mouse and it works in windows and linux.

    this is perfect BB... just what we were after. A side by side comparison of the equivalent applications. I will be definitely using this site to test out a FREE configuration... hopefully get the Workplace fitted out with them... better save the company thousands, and keep a good job supporting those desktops
