Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

"I am not a graphics guy. . . . From a graphics professional standpoint I would say that Photoshop skills are needed simply from a resume standpoint if nothing else."

Indeed, you are not a "graphics guy" if you make a statement like this. Take one attribute of photo enhancement -- sharpening. Sometimes it's very useful to sharpen in the lab channel, especially if you don't want the blemishes on a person's face to appear worse than they really are. The Gimp does not yet have that mode. Photoshop does. This is a small but important example of why a program like Photoshop is useful for photographers and why unfortunately the Gimp is not yet sufficient.
