I am yet to find anything in the commercial world which is half as good
as Rosegarden. Cinerella beats Adobe Premier hands down and Mozilla is
the finest web browser around, oversized, but that's not the point.

I also find that KDevelop is a far better environment to use than
VisualC++ and that the development toolchain is far more advanced than
anything commercially available.

A lot of people fail to realise that those writing OSS are usually full
time professionals as well!

Oh well - between us on here, there is nothing which comes close to



One OS to fool them all
One browser to find them
One email client to bring them all
And through security holes, blind them...
