Multimedia, AV Every so often we publish here at OSNews articles about copyright, about the war of the "old media" establishment against everyone else. Many, myself included, have argued that the way to get out of this mess -- short of changing the law -- is to have more artists release their work under a Creative Commons license. However, after a few years it became obvious to me that CC would never be able to change the industry all by itself. Offering a Free license, and having 30,000 albums released under it, was still not enough. Until the Summer of 2009, that is. Update: Added audio samples.

Is anyone else astounded that over twenty people have already commented on this article, and not one of them has angrily refuted Eugenia's claims about Gimp vs Photoshop or Windows vs Linux? What has this world come to?

Well, maybe there are some people like me around, for who...
-Gimp's UI is just cleaner and more efficient when you're used to it.
-Gimp does most image editing and drawing jobs in a hassle-free manner.
-Gimp is cheaper, and it runs on Linux. With proper pen tablet support.

But who think that if someone wants to spend hundreds of euros/dollars in photoshop licenses because he's more used to its interface or some specific feature, it's perfectly fine. Everyone has a different taste. I can't understand photoshop users, but I tolerate them ;)
