The table of equivalents / replacements / analogs of Windows software in Linux.

Last update: 19.04.03.
URL: http://linuxshop.ru/linuxbegin/win-lin-soft-en/.
This page on other languages: Russian version, Italian version, Spanish version.

19.04.03: Many of various corrections and additions. Thanks to everybody who contributed :).
15.03.03:
New section: "Emulators".
7.03.03:
This page is released under the GNU FDL!

One of the largest difficulties in migrating away from Windows to Linux is the lack of comparable software. Newbies usually search for analogs of Windows software for Linux, and advanced Linux-users cannot answer their questions since they often don't know too much about Windows :). This list of equivalents / replacements / analogs of Windows software in Linux is based on our own experience and on the information from the visitors of this page (thanks!).

This table is not a static - new programs can be added both to left and to right sides, and it is not fact that right column will be filled immediately. In the future we plan to migrate this table to the PHP/MySQL engine, so visitors could add the program themselves, vote for analogs, add comments, etc.

If you want to add the program in table, send mail to xoid26@linux-online.ru with the name of the program, the OS, the description (the purpose of the program, etc), and the link to official site of this program (if you know it). All commentaries, remarks, corrections, offers and bugreports are always welcome - send it all to xoid26@linux-online.ru.

Notes:
1) By default all Linux programs in this table are free as in freedom. (Definitions of Free Software: FSF and Debian). Proprietary software for Linux is marked with the sign [Prop]. Non-free software (open source or relatively free, but have certain restrictive limits) is marked with the sign [NF].
2) If there is nothing in the field of the table, except "???" - the authors of the table do not know what to place there.
3) If the sign (???) stands after the name of the program - the authors of the table are not sure about this program.

The important ideological difference between Windows and Linux:
The majority of the Windows programs are made on principle "all-in-one" (each developer adds everything to his or her product). In the same way, this principle is called the "Windows-way".
The ideology of UNIX/Linux - one component or one program must execute only one task, but execute it well. ("UNIX-way"). The programs under Linux can be thought of as being like the LEGO building blocks. (for instance, if there is a program for spell checking, it can be used with the text editor or email client; or if there is the powerful command-line program for files downloading, it is simple to write the graphic interface (Front-end) for it, etc).
This principle is very important and it is necessary to know it while searching for analogs of Windows-programs in Linux :).

Attention! There may be many mistakes and bugs in the table!! (report about the bugs).

Places where you can get Linux software:
FreshMeat.net | SourceForge.net - Two biggest portals. You can find everything you want!!
LinuxApps.com | IceWalkers.com | Linux.Tucows.com - I like these catalogs.
Download.com / Linux | LinuxSoftware.org | FileWatcher.org | LinuxArchives.com - other catalogs.
Programs / packages / libraries search systems:  RPMseek.org | Tuxfinder.com | RPMfind.net

Programs and games for Windows, that can be run under Wine/WineX:
1) Games for Windows, that can be run under WineX (the information from the official Transgaming site). This is a search form, and this is a full list of games (very big!).
2) The biggest catalog of Windows apps, running under Wine. The database of Codeweavers contains information about ~1000 applications, and the catalog is structured and has a navigation system.
