It seems like their windows build machine has been "h0rked" quite a bit since around the end of Feb when some builds were delayed 2-4 days.

I wish Adobe made Photoshop for Linux.

I wish all people could just use GIMP instead of warexing Photoshop.

I wish gimp was anywhere near as usable as Photoshop... It has most of the features PS has I hear (haven't found them though) but at least for me using it is like wading in something extremely sticky. I just hate the interface. PS6/7 beats it hands down.

Sorry about dragging this even further OT.

I believe there were just some major bugs that made it not worth compiling a windows version. They keep failing the smoke test.

But now there's a useable 20030422 build out, so go get it!

And everyone who's already got it, got get Mandrake Linux. It r0x. But I haven't completely weaned myself off WinXP yet, so I shouldn't talk I guess.

I hear good things about Mandrake too. One of the reasons I still use RedHat is because Mandrake doesn't allow me to set the locale to Japanese like RH does. They say the feature is there, but I just can't seem to get it working. :(

You can run Photoshop on linux with CrossOver Office!

btw, RedHat is much better than Mandrake IMO.

Seems if you tweak it right and get the right DLLs even <a href="http://appdb.codeweavers.com/appview.php?appId=17" target="_blank">WINE can be used to run Photoshop in Linux</a>

I believe you can also buy a PC with Mandrake Linux installed from Walmart, for a lot cheaper than a Windows XP system.

The KDE Desktop seriously is as easy to use as MS Windows, and actually is smarter in the way it handles windows I think. Naturally there is a learning curve just because it's different, but not because it's really any less user friendly.

I saw an article in the Globe and Mail today that a lot of corporations are switching to Linux for workstations, because of the money it saves, and I know some local offices that are doing the same thing.

Using an AMD chip and Mandrake 9.0 I have a 100% non-Wintel machine that is stable and does everything I want. It's as different from Wintel as a Mac, and so much cheaper.

Same here... X server's got to be running. ;)

By my definition, if you can't telnet to it, it's not a server.

But I have sshd running anyway, so I do have servers :)

In my definition a box is not a server unless you serve data to another box upon request. Otherwise linux is always a server, its built that way. Unless you firewall linux its always capable of being a server.
