I would not necessarily blame the company. There are several programs
that I use on Windows, "Roboform" as one example. I have contacted the
company and was informed that producing a version that would work on
all versions of *nix was beyond the scope of what they could presently
do. In addition, they felt that since most OSS users do not want to pay
for software, there would be no way to recuperate their investment.

I have the full blown version of Photoshop and quite frankly I have not
seen anything from the OSS community that compares to it. The program
works and has a very finely designed interface. Gimp is fine for basic
things; however for more finely granular work it just does not measure

Just my 2¢.

Where it is a duty to worship the sun it is pretty sure to be a crime to
examine the laws of heat.
