What Do You Need from Linux?

If you're one of those people who hasn't made the switch to Linux because it's missing some critical application or another, here's your chance to improve your own options down the road: Novell is running a survey, asking what you need. Please go tell them. The results of this survey will likely influence at least a few if not many of the relevant software providers.

FYI, I have been using Linux exclusively for so many years I can't remember, and whatever occasional problems I had at times in the past with browser compatabilities and such have pretty much vanished in the last couple of years. Furthermore, when I need some new piece of software, I just type "install <what-i-need>" (or just check a box from the HUGE list of available free software on the friendly graphical version) and a minute later with no further intervention it's installed and ready to use.

As far as I'm concerned, the only thing it's missing at this point is the pricetag.
