needed: application suggestions for various tasks
I'm just starting to convert from winxp to linux (mandrake 10.1) and there are some task that I need to perform but not sure which program will be best suited for it.
Can you suggest program(s) that will do the following tasks?
-play video (divx/dvd/mpg/ra)
-an office program (hopefully compatible with msoffice documents, both filetypes as well as formatting inside each document)
-powerful graphics editor (i.e photoshop)
-cd/dvd burning (using pioneer 108)
-multilingual support (mainly Big5 Traditional Chinese)
Also, where owuld I get drivers? Or does the os have most the things already? (I haven't installed it yet, I'm currently downloading everything before I format)
Thanks a bunch ppl! And Happy Holidays!

For DVD's, Xine. For streaming Real Media, RealPlayer10GOLD. For everything else, MPlayer.

Localization/Translation is handled by distros and apps. Most I've seen handle Big5.
