"Linux, the popular free UNIX clone, is cool right? But what if you're not a systems administrator, programmer, or network guru? Give Linux to a non-techie who's never heard of a 'command-line' and they're unlikely to be impressed...until maybe you show him the GNU Image Manipulation Program, more affectionately known as 'The GIMP.'"

"GIMP is a full-featured graphics application for manipulating, processing, and creating images. It combines both the feel and power of Adobe Photoshop, but without the cost. You see, GIMP has been developed and released under the GNU General Public License (GPL), which basically means it free for everyone. So, just as long as you're running Linux, GIMP won't cost you a dime, just the download time."
