I'm a Linux user, and my killer app doesn't yet exist for Linux (though there are Windows equivalents). What I need, but Linux still lacks, is a good house floor plan drawing program. Qcad can be used for that purpose, but that's just a general cad program. A quick Google search turns up such programs for Windows, like these:

I really wish one of these would be ported to Linux. Then I wouldn't ever need to boot Windows.
