Hello All;
Yes I would like to see CorelDraw ported over. I own an older version for linux. But haven't been able to use it since Mandrake 9.0.
Yes I would pay. I have had enough of the looking through the window. If I could find ANYTHING in linux that I could do the same job with ease in the graphic arena I would close the window for good.
Thanks for the forum.
Terry

And of course a second one would be Photoshop. I like the Gimp but I still can't wing myself from not using Photoshop for graphic editing/creation needs.

Cheers.
I would have to agree with you. But for now, try Photoshop in wine, it works great for me.

I like the Gimp, but is there a way that it would have a MAIN window where all your toolbars and menus are arranged in a way like CorelDraw or Photoshop? I mean, for new users like me, the Gimp makes the desktop too crowded and I would have to minimize the toolbar windows one-by-one just to look for some certain dialog boxes hidden behind.

Yes I know what you mean. But I have found that if you make a new work area and only fill 3/4 of the screen with the work area and arrange the rest to the right or left you will be ok. And remember in the Gimp every thing you do is right click so do that on the tool menu until you get the hang of it. I am always on the look out for graphics. I too am new and yes I would like to see it have a full interface especially with such a powerful photo editing program.
Thank for you comments and good luck
Terry

Games are the ones that must be ported to Linux.

Just right click on the borders on top - and make the main windows: above others (ie stay-on-top)
this way you have a perfect layout even better than Corel Draw/Photoshop as you can overlay the canvas on top of windows you might be looking at (ie a webpage)

Cant compare Corel Draw with Gimp - 2 very different type of programs (raster x vector)

While I believe Gimp 2 is a serious contender to Photoshop
There is nothing yet that seriously competes with Corel Draw in Linux
Apps like Inskcape, Sodipodi, Karbon have a long way to go.

Gimp 2 is extremely powerful though - spend 1 week studying it - make the effort
Photoshop may win on CMYK treatment of photos,
Gimp surpasses Photoshop in many areas regarding RGB, Filters and webalizers.

I would say Photoshop is the single proprietary software I know of which is worth every dollar it costs (unlike a certain brand of proprietary x86 operating systems, which isn't worth the price of the little discs it comes on).

Photoshop exists for OS X (which is cool), but I can't afford a Mac...

can't the Gimp use Photoshop filters?

I would like to see a linux version of two different programs.

First I would like a linux version of Media Monkey. A very nice catalog, editor, player, etc for mp3 and ogg.

Second I would like a linux version of Incredimail, a very nice email client.
