Actually, there is a half decent POS application for linux. I believe it only works properly on KDE, though I may be wrong. It's called Lemon POS and is available through kde-apps.org.
There aren't any programs which I have found missing (?), but there are several which are severely lacking, such as desktop publishing. Inkscape and scribus are ok, but hardly up to scratch for serious publishing.
