Breaking a Habit is tough; But was planning this for long to migrate to linux. In my case i had two options : Fedora Core 9 and Ubuntu 8.10. At the very end, i choose Ubuntu 8.10 . Someday i will briefly discuss about that. For now , I am about to discuss how i moved to linux without breaking most of my habits:
Total Commander Vs Krusader
I am a total Commander User and i don’t know how could i have survived in linux without Krusader. It’s a nice replacement of Total Commander with little bits of lacking. But i am fine with it. Another hint, If you are too glued with total commander then use WINE ( windows enviroment in Linux ) and install totalcommander in it.
NOTEPAD++ Vs Kate /Vim
As i have already told you about WINE so i think you may not want to know about KATE. But KATE can be a good replacement for Notepad++. But if you are a NOTEPAD++ addict like me then install an FTP server and then use total commander ( inside wine) and then work in your files.
WINE( Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer )
This will remove most of your headache but don’t expect much from it.
I use gxine, VLC, Rhythmbox player for multimedia purpose.
Some other tools :
Openoffice , Firefox, Downloader 4 X ..
Still Looking for :
I am still looking for a nice visual MySQL management like SQLYog replacement in Ubuntu. Currenlty i am using PHPMyAdmin. If anyone knows a better one leave a comment.
