I will get back later with more detail but what i use windows for is small. I go back to use photo shop, paint shop, and dreamweaver for templates. I been using gimp more and more but havent learned enough to use for all imaging. To replace dreamweaver I am looking into NVU and bluefish but havent had the time or energy yet. I have been using gedit, my favorite text editor was ultra edit which UE say they are working on a linux version and hope it comes soon!! I will catch up with you on aim later brotha
