do you all think it's a good idea to start a company using all linux- even down to the designing software so that we don't have to spend a single cent on software- pure linux- do you all think it's feasible in the future to come?

Yes, it is now. One area where there is a lack though is in WYSIWYG editors. There are some really top notch html coding editors (screem, quanta, & bluefish are all excellent) -- but they are not WYSIWYG. As of now there is no WYSIWYG on par with dreamweaver, netscape/mozilla composer, WebSphere (an IBM commercial product), and AMAYA are about all you have to work with at this time.

But if you are into hand coding you will be very happy with quanta, or bluefish.
[bluefish.openoffice.nl...]
[quanta.sourceforge.net...]

The Gimp [gimp.org] is just an amazing piece of software.
Here is a good GIMP tutorial site:

yes that's just what's lacking in the editing part -i.e- dreamweaver - they don't have a edition that runs on Linux - do they?

I've read some reports that it will run under WINE.

Now why is it a big deal that there be a WYSIWYG running on linux?

Why not just straight code it. I don't see a problem with that and straight coding has always given me the best control over what I'm working with.

But that is the age old question, is it better to use a WYSIWYG or is it better to code, or both?!

I believe Google runs mostly on Linux for this reason. Also, they don't HAVE to have software agreements with anyone, but can choose different hardware at their whim.

Makes sense to me.

And as far as the "by hand" or WYSIWYG, I learned to code by hand first, and am grateful I did so for the sheer and simple fact that I know when I see a mistake. It makes it much easier to fix broken code when you know what the code is supposed to look like.

Graphix, I think they did. GIMP is capable of a lot of things.
