I gave up on Vista. It just froze up too much living up to all the rumors that it is crap. I am keeping Windows XP on my laptop because there are a few programs not available for Linux, but my main computer now has Kubuntu and Ubuntu. I am leaning towards Kununtu at the moment. I figured out how to get the Nvidia card working and have dual monitors. The question now is that I need a toolset to replace common programs I used in Windows... mainly 1) Adobe PhotoShop 2) Dreamweaver 3) Expression Web.

It looks like GIMP is very robust, but looks like it has a major learning curve. I'd like any input regarding this. Also, as far as a WYSIWYG... I can't find anything. There are a lot out there that are strictly HTML editors, but lack a design view. I don't want to hand code tables and simple tags. I am testing Quanta Plus right now, but it looks basic compared to Dreamweaver and Expression Web, not to mention I am finding things that don't work, such as the undo button. What would anybody recommend as a WYSIWYG program? I don't even care if I have to pay for it. I will do some editing in PHP, etc... but I do not want an editor that only has code view.

Please help!

There are few options for wysiwyg editors in Linux - the main ones are Nvu and Kompozer, both of which are offshoots from the Mozilla Composer from the old Mozilla suite (Seamonkey):


I haven't used either, but I believe Kompozer is supposed to be better - Nvu seems to have stopped development. Try both. :)
