Re: When open source projects close the process, something's wrong

It would have been better for everyone if the GIMP developers had never released their Beta code. The lack of an art program would have either pushed a reliable programming team to create a FOS art program that did the job well, or a commercial package would have become standard. I heard that Photogenics was being ported to Linux. I will vouch for the usability of Photogenics. Paul Nolan is a very capable programmer, and his UI is very good most of the time. It is a pity that The GIMP has the Linux users fooled that it is a capable replacement for Photoshop (not that Photoshop is the best tool in the world for anything other than photo manipulation... there ARE other forms of art that Photoshop is not geared toward).
