12 Excellent Free and Open Source Graphics Apps

,----[ Quote ]
| The worlds of open source and freeware both include many 
| outstanding applications for working with graphics and photos. 
| These include standard fare such as image editors, but it's also 
| worth looking into free desktop publishers, web design templates, 
| and quirky graphics tools. Whether you want to produce splashy 
| graphical documents, enhance graphics on a blog or web site, 
| create eye-catching logos, or more, check out our newly updated 
| collection of 12 applications and resources here.


FOSS v Proprietary? â A debate between two geeks?

,----[ Quote ]
| In regards to my comment to him âchampioning the Macâ I use the 
| word champion to describe something any user has settled on as a 
| result of their own research and needs.  I champion Linux since I 
| have chosen it above alternatives as its best for me.  
| Throttlemeister has done so with Mac on the same basis.
| Throttlemeister makes reference to the needs of work and MS 
| Office.  I think this highlights perfectly that far from Microsoft 
| being âstandards compatâ and as some would like you to believe [1] 
| entering into a brave new world of cooperation and 
| interoperability with FOSS.  The fact remain that intentional or 
| not, there are barriers for people wanting freedom of choice in 
| their software solutions and its not a fault of FOSS.



Why I Use Linux: Kenâs Story

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux opens a hole new world of freedom that Microsoft does not want you to
| see or even know about. But the tide is turning! Tom-Tom and Linux won the
| suit over Microsoft. The Linux community was more than ready and MS knew it!


Why I hate non-Free software

,----[ Quote ]
| All software sucks. It's full of bugs, and rarely works right.
| The general solution to this is to live with bugs, and fix them as you see
| them. Eventually, you've fixed enough of them that you don't care anymore. If
| one comes up, you just fix it. Easy.


Why Software is not treated fairly

,----[ Quote ]
| When you âbuyâ a proprietary software you are not actually buying the
| software but a license to use it. Although in many cases the physical package
| of the software convinces you that you actually bought something that belongs
| to you, in reality what you get is someoneâs permission to use a piece of
| software.
