    Linux Support

    No, they aren't good products. They're the only products that do certain things they do. Inkscape currently is 20 times faster, about on par with affinity, has a lot of the features. "A lot of" isn't enough, though. Shortly affinity designer will overtake it with many features as it continues to compete with illustrator directly. Before you respond to this, I'd suggest you read their own blog page I linked, by their ex project manager, because nobody, not even adobe, thinks their products are good. Just because something or someone does things something or someone does not, doesn't make them good.

    Linux Support

    Your posts really show that you don't use it, if anything. Or really don't understand it. He's right. Something built with cross platform framework is very easy to port. The only difficulties in most software is the user interface issues itself. Which are ruled out using things like Qt. This is a good example, the most relevant post in the thread that was completely ignored. Because nobody understands it. Porting our company's 20 year old $300,000 custom soil microbe analyzing software took a weekend, after 3 years of trying to get the source. Giving a community who wants to do the work for you, for free the tools they need is important. Last year shows it, AMD driver in the linux kernel went from barely existing to the most seamless and error free driver experience that exists on any operating system, ever. Today there is no better graphics experience than that specifically. That's more related to the chipset vendor used than it is the date. There are still plenty of locked chipsets. Ironically the best IEEE 802.11 chipsets are all open. KDE is a desktop environment. Completely unrelated to linux and not at all Ubuntu based. On any "linux distro" you have the GNU tools, and you can install any tools you want, including any desktop environment. They did, and dropped support quickly after due to too many bugs. adobe is bloated on top of bloat, trying to backwards compatibility for standards their own developers hate: http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2009/05/some_thoughts_about_the_psd_format.html Now when you pay people who hate what they do, they don't do good jobs. My entire company has to use random versions of adobe illustrator because it crashes on random computers with random hardware. All of them are different. Some computers have the exact same hardware and most updated version of windows and have DIFFERENT versions of adobe CC so they don't crash. There's no consistency with adobe nor windows. I sure wish I was dealing with "the same exact issue" every time. There's even a bug where if you don't have a printer connected, illustrator crashes on startup. Google it. It's pathetic. Had to register to reply to you, and specifically your disgusting post. Linux and open source users have been proven to be the highest paying customers on "pay what you want" model of software, even though it started with music. Since then steam, humble bundle, poe, bomb music, pronhub, headsets dot com, radiohead, canonical softwares, and all other donationwares that willingly post statistics of their sales have shown Linux users will not only use products more but pay more for them when they are good. Nothing is more valuable than your time, and software developers who devote all of their free time have no problem spending money on good products. The entire internet and video stacks are all free software. ffmpeg, http, TCP/IP, POP3, SMTP, (email), web browsers, chromium (chrome, iridium, chromium, vivaldi, opera, edge), firefox (and it's 300 forks as well), Xen, KVM, qemu, are all free time projects from "nobody wanting to work for free", working for free. It isn't always work, some people enjoy software development... Adobe does not provide good products and never has.
