Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"What made me realize that creative software on Linux had made
it with the content creation crowd is this poll on the DAZ Studio
forums: more than 150 Daz Studio users would like to see a Linux
version. What made it important is that DAZ Studio is not Blender:
it is a program that is designed for "artistic" content creation
rather than for "technical" content producers, but still a lot of
these non technical users run Linux and want a Linux version of the
application. It is not top of the line professional contents
producers like Pixar that are switching to Linux, these are average
:When looking back, I can't help but realize that creative
software for Linux has made a lot of progress in very little time.
I remember when the main graphic creation tool on Linux was The
GIMP. Now we also have Inkscape for vector graphics and Blender for
3D graphics. Both Blender and the GIMP are very polished creative
software that can easily rival commercial offering such as
Photoshop, even for advanced use, furthermore these are still
actively developed and new versions are being released at a
sustained rate. Inkscape is lagging behind Illustrator but is still
very usable for all but the most demanding graphic designers."
