I want to change my OS from Windows XP to Ubuntu 10.10 . But I like some programs in Windows, so is there a GOOD programs in Linux(Ubuntu) to change this list of programs? And I'll be appreciated for some links where I can download GOOD software for Linux. I need such programs, that I could open their files in Windows OS environment. For example: .doc, .jpeg, .png, .gif, .txt and others. Thanx!

This question is much better suited to ubuntu.stackoverflow.com –  Saladin Akara Nov 14 '10 at 15:49
    
Try posting this on askubuntu.com. SO is for programming questions, so you won't get much help here. –  Computerish Nov 14 '10 at 15:50
    
Just search in the package manager, there are tons of good applications that you can search by keyword. –  MaQleod Nov 14 '10 at 19:03
    
This is a very subjective question - best to look at an established online directory for this purpose - see Jeff's answer. –  Zayne S Halsall Nov 14 '10 at 20:14
