Novell has started a survey about which programs Linux people want to have ported to their favourite platform. Take the survey and get what you want, they plan to talk to the company responsible for the most wanted product. Photoshop is now in the lead.

ps: World of Warcraft is on the list =) :ds

Already said here, but yeah a good idea!

Personally the only things I really crave to be ported are games. For every application I used to use with Windows, I have found a linux alternative that works so much better :)

And Photoshop would be a good one.

I agree with you, there are usually very competent Linux alternatives. I think GIMP is really good at this point, even though it lacks some of the professionalism that Photoshop have.

Support for sound drivers is one of the worst things I know in linux. It is a big issue.

Moved to Duplicate Threads in favor of "Need an app ported to Linux ? Tell Novell!."
