Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


[ Thanks to Mayank for this link. ]

"Corel Photo-Paint is the well known image creation and photo editing application. This great Windows application recently made the jump to Linux version and is available as a free download. Does it match up to Photo-Paint for Windows? Or should Linux users stick with GIMP?"

"Corel Photo-Paint needs no introduction. Photo-Paint has been competing with Adobe Photoshop for some time now. While Photo-Paint has always been a very capable program, but, it hasn't quite been able to match the popularity of Photoshop. Its image creation and manipulation fetaures are very strong. So it was good news when Corel decided to the latest release, Photo-Paint 9, to the Linux community as a free download...."

"How does Photo-Paint compare to GIMP. Well GIMP is a lot lighter and faster and can do just about everything that Photo-Paint does. Photo-Paint is a very impressive application and it's very feature rich but they really should have gone beyond the Wine route. I would really have liked to give Corel a much higher score here but the user interface issues really need to be fixed."
