Linux Switcher Perspective has an article by Kevin L. Ritchey on his switch to Linux (because “it worked BETTER and made me more PRODUCTIVE”). What is interesting is his wishlist of the things that are still needed on the Linux Desktop:

– A better Exchange replacement
– Off-line Mapping (similar to MS Streets) solution
– Off-line Encyclopedia (anyone thought of moving Wikipedia to CDROM?)
– Intuit’s Quickbooks
– GTK/QT front end for Mysql or Postgresql to mimic the functionality of Microsoft
– A bundled group of home user friendly and useful software to mimic Microsoft’s Works package
