Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

So you say that there is Inkscape installed in Ubuntu's "default install" along with "Uniconvertor" installed and ready to process that pile of CDs ? ;-)


No, I didn't say that.

I just pointed out that a Windows install fails the same test of useability that you proposed for Linux.

You know ? I do not like Linux. Instead of clicking "next", "ok" , "next" as on normal OSes, those "uni*geeks" always told you to compile something called "colonel" from "shources" or something. (sarcasm)


Honestly, would I put you through all of that? Oh dear, the mind boggles!

No, what I would do is point you to easy-to-install packages:
http://sk1project.org/modules.php?name=Products&product=uniconverto...

There you go. Easy peasy.

Or, if you didn't want to have to convert the files, then just use a graphics editor that can handle them:
http://sk1project.org/modules.php?name=Products&product=sk1

This one is not quite ready yet, so you might have to build that. It is up to you.

Still easier (and AFAIK cheaper) to get this for, say, Ubuntu than a program for Windows XP that can do CDR files.

I am still going to wait a while before I would claim this capability for Visio files, though:
http://sk1project.org/modules.php?name=Products&product=vsdviewer

VDSviewer is still only alpha quality.
