Alright, its that time of year again when I start wondering if I can make Linux box my main computer. I’m going to try just that for the month of December, use Fedora Core 6 as my main OS, and try to stick to using all web-based tools for the majority of my needs.
I’ll admit to everyone right up front, I will keep my desktop system on Windows XP with Office 2003, mainly because I occasionally need Photoshop, Visio, and one or two other unique apps. But I’ll try to do as much natively in Linux as possible.
I’ve a favor to those of you who are interested – can you give me suggestions on the following? I’m looking for these tools on Linux to help ease my December sojourn into Linux.
- Blogging tool, similar to Windows Live Writer or w.Bloggar
- Graphics tool in place of Photoshop (yes I’ll be giving Gimp a go [again])
- Screen capture tool similar to Techsmith Snagit
- <more to come>
Any comments, suggestions, jeers or cheers can go in the comments. I’ll be backing up my data from my Vista laptop, wiping the HDD, and installing FC6 this week.
