Not that we have time to actually DO this, but then, what's life without a wishlist... :)

I'd like to see this Camp but last time I tried to compile on a pc with gcc even that wouldn't work (then again I'm no coder). Still would be nice to see though.

I'd like to see Wings3D ported properly. Some time ago I build it on Irix, but it locks up the window manager or Xsgi or something of that sort when running on Impact graphics. It might do it on other graphics, but so far it has only been tested on impact.

BTW, running the program on a linux machine with the display redirected to the Octane works fine.

Yep, I agree. It's a big improvement!
I would like to see Abiword 2.2 and a Worms clone! Worms of Prey (http://wormsofprey.org/) looks good! :D

nekonoko - I think we need a new category for this user class - "gods of porting" or something, maybe. People who do work like dexter1 and foetz and squeen and all the others need something a little extra by their usernames - a big gold star, red text, dunno what. Something, tho.

thanks, foetz.

Mostly the same as above:
Ted 2.16
DVDauthor or similar
OpenOffice 1.1.x

Maybe:
AbiWord 2.2.1 (Is there a GTK1 version? If not, is GTK 2.6 / Glib 2.6 any faster than GTK 2.4.14 / Glib 2.4.8??)
Latest KDE in a tardist
Mplayer GUI (maybe Motif based?)

Dreaming:
FireFox 2.0 w/ SpecialSuper10xFast patches (fast enough for R4600 Indy!)

Nice thing about Open Source .... now that Firefox and Thunderbird are 'stable' maybe try this - choose one version, open up the code and throw out all the crap. If you type a wrong url into Firefox now it doesn't return a 404 page not found, oh no ! It kindly redirects you to google or netscape search or some other god-forsaken "helpful" place. That's only one example. There's a bazillion other Mommy's Little Helpers. Thanks so much. Maybe on a 2ghz Athlon w/3 gigs of RAM that only takes .000356 ms but on an O2, it's an eternity. "Oh that doesn't take ANY time or space at all, the code is just sitting there until it's needed." If it isn't doing anything, then why do we want it ? And why is each iteration of these programs more sluggish than the last if all these "helpers" don't slow things down ?

Java Torrent Client.

really cool.. but sadly needs Eclipse stuffs to work even with the .jar file. so i had no luck to run it on the Octane.

but i tried it on shitdows and its a really great torrent app.

happy xmas :)

I also agree with OpenOffice new release.. that'd great.
