Web designing with Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| As a freelance web designer, I really thought migrating to Ubuntu Linux will 
| give me a really hard time. I never thought that Ubuntu Linux has a very good 
| graphic design tool that can do what I am doing with Photoshop. Although Gimp 
| is still way too different with Photoshop, I still see Gimp as a very 
| powerful tool in graphic and web designing. It also possess features that 
| Photoshop has.

| it wrong.

Gimp 2.3 (preview of 2.4) 

,----[ Quote ]
| The major change for this release seems to be a big usability 
| overhaul. New defaults are now in place that make the Gimp look 
| a little bit like Photoshop, but still has many features that 
| make it unique.

Foresight Linux 2.0 Alpha 1

| With its lime green theme, the appearance of Foresight 2.0 Alpha 1 is

Foresight Linux 1.4 Review

Review: Foresight Linux 1.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Installation of Foresight Linux was a snap. Under VMware Fusion
| Beta on my MacBook Pro and on my Athlon 64 x2 system with GeForce
| 7800GT the installation was flawless. The graphical installer
| popped up cleanly on both and easily walked me through the
| installation process with minimal questions.
