Hi,

What do you want to do that is the real question? If you tell me what you want to do I can recommend some software to get. Also, you can go to the add/remove programs and that can show you a lot of good software.

Cheers!

Hi,

Quote:

Can you give me an example of one? I am not familiar with them.

CD/DVD Burner - I would recommend Brasero Disk Burner. If you don't have it installed already you can get it from typing: sudo apt-get install brasero.

FTP Client - I would recommend that you use FileZilla FTP client. You can get that from the add/remove programs. Choose "All available applications. Then do a search for ftp.

I don't really know any good console emulators. I would recommend doing a google search and see what comes up. If you need help installing any of them let me know.

Cheers!

If you are used to using a program such as the one that you linked to then I would stick with it. I think that it is great that they say that it works with WINE. If you don't want that, then do a google search and see what you come up with. I really don't know what program to tell you.
