I've started playing around with Linux a little now, and am trying to see what apps I can use in it.
I've read a little on the Wine project, and have heard about Winex and CrossOver Office. Are Winex and CrossOver just non-open source versions of Wine? If so, which would you recommend for mainly just Photoshop, 3dstudio Max, and some occasional Morrowind?
Also, which audio player would you recommend for mp3s and cds?
Lastly, does anyone have a recommendation for CD Ripping/Burning software under Linux?
I may answer some of these questions myself when I get a chance to play around with it a little more tonight, but thanks in advance.
P.s. If it matters, I am currently using Knoppix v3.3 (non-hd), but am going to try out Mandrake and Slackware also.
p.p.s. Would you recommend Mandrake 10 'Community Edition' or the older 9.1?
CD Ripping/Burning software... I quite like <A HREF="http://nostatic.org/grip/" target="_new">Grip</A> for ripping, but not sure about audio burning software, as I seem to only create data disks... but I've heard good things about <A HREF="http://www.k3b.org/" target="_new">K3B</A>.
I'd recommend MDK 10 over MDK 9.1. Just try to keep it updated as the patches are released.
