Graphics, User Interfaces High bit depth support, non-destructive editing (so called "effect layers") and colour management. Three hot topics in photography editing - that users have been waiting for for a long time now to appear in GIMP. Today Linux & Photography blog features an exclusive interview with Martin Nordholts, one of the core contributors to GIMP. Nordholts speaks about the current state of affairs, explains what is going on deep inside the GIMP (and GEGL) and also lifts a corner of the veil about what is to come.

This may be a problem in retarded OSes that don't have virtual desktops


I don't think that whether or not having virtual desktops is a measure of retardedness.

That being said, I don't know of any operating system that does not have virtual desktops. Windows has them too, you know, just pick one of the ten million billion 3rd party implementations.

"Windows has them too, you know, just pick one of the ten million billion 3rd party implementations."

Do they actually work correctly? I still haven't found one that did.

No, they don't. They are just awful.
