Cool Software Suggestions


Ok, I just made the move. I got rid of Windows for good and jumped feet first into the world of Linux. Now I just need a few suggestions on some software.

First, I need something along the lines of Adobe Photoshop

Second, I need something to do web development, I was using Homesite 5.5 from Macromedia

I also was wondering about a good media player, preferrably one that you can listen to the radio online

Thanks for taking the time to check this out.

XMMS is compatable with streaming mp3 radio found on shoutcast.com and live365.com.

I use Screem for maintaing my (very basic) website. There are a variety of others. Quanta Plus is supposed to be good.

The Gimp is the only Photoshop replacement I know of. However, you can run Photoshop on Linux using Codeweavers crossover office.
