Windows Last week, security vendor Sophos published a blog post in which it said that Windows 7 was vulnerable to 8 our of 10 of the most common viruses. Microsoft has responded to these test results, which are a classic case of "scare 'm and they'll fall in line".

As for other, real-world actual desktop applications ... I'd like to hear of one with wide adoption (say over 80% of desktop users would run applications of that kind) where one couldn't get good software for Linux to achieve that end.


This is quite unfair because many of those applications exist already. What u say following this quote is unattributable to tangible uses.

I would like to see back-of-book Indexing
software for Linux.
Macrex runs on another Unix, but is really for geeks, not Indexers. Cindex is the best, runs on Windows, uses a database creation layout.
There are many Open Source books.

This software is not for geeks, there are Indexing courses around the world; cheapest in United States.

LyX is a document processor that encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents (WYSIWYM) and not simply their appearance (WYSIWYG).

LyX combines the power and flexibility of TeX/LaTeX with the ease of use of a graphical interface. This results in world-class support for creation of mathematical content (via a fully integrated equation editor) and structured documents like academic articles, theses, and books. In addition, staples of scientific authoring such as reference list and index creation come standard. But you can also use LyX to create a letter or a novel or a theatre play or film script. A broad array of ready, well-designed document layouts are built in.

For reference, LyX is effectively a GUI front-end for LaTeX

Very powerful, professional document preparation software.

Your just thinking about Keyword Indexing like in a Word Processor or Google search engine. This is insufficient.

Do I need to spell out why there are specific software for these tasks for incompetent d*ckhe*ds like u?
