Hi all, a friend has assured me that Gimpshop is heading towards "as good as" Photoshop at a very fast rate. I'm still doing my own design training... my wife is the master/guru, but hey? There's no harm asking. How long until designers AND printers can download the latest "open source" version of "Quark look-alike" and "Photoshop look-alike" for FREE? Keep in mind all those times as a designer you've upgraded Quark, but been frustrated and slowed down by printers that could not upgrade it fast enough for you. Those print houses wanted to save some money a bit longer, and slowed you down, especially when you worked in one version and had to backsave to another. How long until open source becomes an industry standard simply because it's free, and bugs seem to get fixed quicker, and customers/users get to have a real say in the development? 2 years? 5 years? Never? Now? Who uses open source in their professional design work?
