In the News Okay, so this is entirely new to me. Sparrow is was an email client for Mac OS X and iOS (and Windows), which brought a decent Gmail experience to these platforms - as opposed to Apple's own not-so-good Gmail support and Google's Gmail iOS application which, well, is just a webpage. Google has now acquired Sparrow, and basically all hell has broken loose, to the point of Rian van der Merwe writing that 'we' lost "faith in a philosophy that we thought was a sustainable way to ensure a healthy future for independent software development, where most innovation happens".

Well then they are fools, Adobe suite is far advanced. This is a well known fact.


There are a ton of things to consider before stating that as a fact. Tools are useful for those who use it. My art skills would still be crap if I used Photoshop. Claiming that a professional is a fool because he chooses to work with a different tool set is just being narrow minded.

We are talking about professional graphic artists and what not. Industry standard is Adobe CS.

Professional graphic artists should be agnostic when it comes to image editing software because they should at least learn the fundamental usage regardless their preferences from Gimp to Corel Paintshop via Krita.

Real innovators and artists don't give a damn about your 'industry standards'.
