Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I am trying to see if I can get rid of windows and run Linux on my home PC.  I have installed SUSE standard server 8 and I am looking for some applications to replace Windows applications.  I would like to find Linux replacements for the following programs.

1) Adobe Illustrator
2) Paint Shop Pro
3) Macromedia Dreamweaver

If you know of a good replacement for these applications I would appreciate it if you could direct me to where I can find our more information about them.  Thanks for any suggestions.

I'd think those requirements could be satisfied by OpenOffice and gimp.
