Linux Dell has posted a page extolling the virtues of Linux (Ubuntu in particular), with a quick explanation of what Linux is and how it compares against Windows. Of course, the page links off to Dell's various computers that ship with Linux pre-installed.

Aren't GIMP and Paint.NET both raster graphics editors (commonly known as paint programs)?


I think you're verging toward hyper-correctness here, as by this definition even Photoshop isn't a photo program, only Lightroom is. Or perhaps Bridge is but Photoshop isn't. I don't know exactly, but I think something went wrong.

For those looking for a "simpler-than-GIMP-alternative", a better choice would be Krita


Looks nifty, but I can't actually imagine using it for what I'd use GIMP for, seeing as it describes itself as a "painting/sketching" program. That strikes me more along the lines of Illustrator (Adobe) side or Draw and Paint (Corel).

digikam looks nice in the more Lightroom-ish side of things. The only free software I know of on Windows that is similar is Blue Marine. That segment is typically dominated by for-pay software on Windows, or for entirely casual use like Picasa.
