Hummm, sorry man, Don't know much about clustering...

But let's see... there is Evolution which is a good MS Outlook alternative it works really well.

The Gimp - Good PhotoShop alternative

WINE - For emulating Win32 programs ( I use it to run Half-Life / CS )

VNC - Good cross platform remote display kind of like PCAnywhere

XMMS - Nice Winamp clone

Compupic - A nice ACDC like picture viewer / manager

IglooFTP - The best FTP / FXP FTP Client out there.

hmm, that's all I can think of for now hope this helps

Don't take this the wrong way, but if you're "new" I wouldn't recommend trying to setup a cluster.

And nmap = portscanner, traceroute = trace route

By far the best codec for sound/music is ogg vorbis. It r0x mp3.

The best you can get to emulation for windows is wine/winex. I don't think you can emulate anything for the OSX (why you would even want to is beyond me anyways).

I run FlashFXP under WINE as an FXP client. gftp works fine as a plain old ftp client though :)

You don't need anti-virus program. If I'm not mistaken, there's only 4-5 virus in Linux. Virus in Linux can only infect one user, not system-wide as long as you're not running as root all the time or get infected while running as root. :p

Everbuddy shoud do the trick to manage AIM, ICQ, and MSN accounts, but I haven't used it since I still couldn't manage to get the Net working in Linux. There's also Gaim (Gnome AIM) and lICQ (ICQ for Linux). I don't know if there's a Linux version of Trillian, though. For MP3 playing, XMMS does it, but I heard there's a Winamp available for Linux now! For an office suite, I definitely would use KOffice since StarOffice 6.0 is not freeware. The GIMP is really good with graphics and yes, a Windows verison of it is available. For web browsing, I recommend using Mozilla or Opera! Netscape 4.x is too obsolete and Netscape 6.x has too many apps added on to it, but I'm not quite sure with the Linux version of it, though.

Thanks for pointing out that everybuddy program.

I'm really diging it. The build-in spell check is very nice!
