    Switching art students to GNU/Linux.
    This is a great article about getting those art to work at the lowest cost you can imagine on Ubuntu GNU/Linux. Recently, a new friend of mine asked me about graphic, web editing etc in GNU/Linux.

    The next step was to determine which applications I'd use. For digital painting and image editing tools to replace Photoshop and Painter, the GIMP was the obvious choice. Krita is gaining some interesting painting capabilities, and next year I think I'll teach that too.

    For a vector graphics design program to replace FreeHand, the choices included Skencil, Inkscape, Sodipodi, and OpenOffice.org's Draw. I chose Inkscape because I especially liked its user interface and features such as Tile Clones. As a side benefit, Inkscape's Help menu offers tutorials that are concise, useful, and inspiring.

    For a page layout program to substitute for QuarkXpress, I considered Scribus and Passepartout. Scribus seemed to be in a much more mature stage of development, so it seemed to be the better choice. At the time I overlooked Cenon, and I haven't investigated it much since, but Scribus has worked well.

    To replace Dreamweaver, I reviewed Bluefish, Nvu, and Screem, but I chose Quanta Plus because I liked its user interface and its project management features. - via NewsForge.


    Who said we can have fun with GNU/Linux? Come on, if you can't run em' WINE em'. So Adlan, i hope you can deeply think about installing Ubuntu GNU/Linux on your box eh.
