Linux Complaining about Windows Vista is a national past time on Internet forums these days. Windows Vista 'costs too much', 'has onerous product activation', 'requires too much hardware', etc. These complaints are often followed up by a very simple boast: 'I'm just going to switch to Linux'. But in today's landscape, how viable is that statment? Is the threat to switch to Linux an empty one, or is it entirely possible?"

Yes, notice how I said that other OSS alternatives were not as mature as Gimp...Inkscape and Scribus are very good, but don't compare to Gimp in terms of maturity.

I hadn't heard about Xara Extreme...thanks for the link, that looks *very* promising (though it's not a bitmap graphic editor like Gimp/PS, it could be a worthy competitor to Illustrator).
