Chapter 11: Using Linux Replacements for Windows Programs


Overview

SUSE Linux aims to be similar to Windows in order to ease the transition for Microsoft migrators. As such, it supplies a core collection of software that borrows more than a few ideas from Microsoft products, as well as from the third-party companies that create software for Windows. For example, OpenOffice.org looks and operates in a similar fashion to Microsoft Office. K3b borrows the look and feel of Ahead's Nero CD-burning software. Some people might have trouble telling the Kontact application apart from Outlook.

In this chapter, we will take a tour of some of the Linux replacements for Windows programs and tell you where you can find the vital features you'll use often.
