Journal Zarf's Journal: Things I miss from Linux while on my MacBook Pro...

Fortunately, Fink and MacPorts have brought back tools like Gimp, wget, nmap, and kismet to my arsenal... but still I miss:
  1. 3D cube. "Spaces" just ain't it.
  2. Flaming window effect... (oh man that was so cool)
  3. the vast application selection in aptget
  4. ability to use VIM/gvim/kvim ubiquitously
  5. telinit
  6. simple script based init system was easier to manage
  7. ability to change file to program associations from a text editor
  8. virtual terminals
  9. hackable keyboard macros/keys (although the mac defaults are pretty damn good)
  10. custom keystroke to lock screen

What do you (or would you) miss most about your Linux desktop?
