Linux alternatives to Windows applications: Prior to the migration I was already running Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird, and LibreOffice for my day-to-day stuff so my bread-and-butter was mostly natively catered for. I also have a Microsoft Access database that (when I have spare time) I'm steadily porting to a php web-based system. Other than that, I have Windows games and Xara for graphics design. Some apps I traded up such as the Windows scanning software (wiaacmgr) and Epson Scan, for Linux alternatives.How is Debian better than Ubuntu and its derivatives? I've heard that it's pretty good for scaring away Linux newbies. Also, since making the switch, how have you dealt with running Windows applications that don't have a suitable Linux alternative?
