Just wait until Windows 8 hits. I've been working with it for the past few months at my day job and I tell you it is the most horrid thing I've encountered (for desktops at least). Once it's released to the masses you might see a number of people coming to linux because it doesn't behave like windows. It got me, that's for sure. I'm keeping Windows 7 for as long as they let me and I've just started messing around with fedora and opensuse as alternatives. I have to say I'm impressed so far. As far as the thread topic of not behaving like windows, didn't they make google for that? ...

Ahhh, if you had said "tethering" or "WiFi client" I'd have gotten it straight away. The term "WiFi hotspot" means something quite different to me, something more infrastructural. smile.gif

This has been my understanding. From what I remember learning about GIMP vs PS is PS feels more intuitive to graphics people because Adobe had graphic artists help them with menu layout, tool names, etc. where as GIMP was more a group of IT guys putting it all together. Both are equally powerful from what I can tell from my own use just a slightly different look, feel, and work flow. I have a licensed copy of of the original CS on my G5 tower and anymore my work flow uses some features from CS and others from GIMP. It will be interesting to be able to keep this process and not need windows to do it.
