Oh right, I forgot those too. Basically the browser, speech, and 
recording features are all implemented as externals. Ditto dynamic font 
loading. In Mac and Windows there are system-wide resources that can be 
called on to implement these things. If Linux doesn't provide that then 
it would likely be a lot of work to write each of them from scratch. 
It's my guess that's the reason they aren't available on that OS.
