Krita is a fully-loaded raster graphics workhorse that stands on its own.

HOW-TO: Configuring Your Mouse To Work With All 5 Buttons

It can be found on systems using hardware (wireless adapters in particular) which is not well supported by Linux drivers; by gluing in the Windows driver, ndiswrapper allows this hardware to operate. But, since it is a mechanism created to stuff the most proprietary of binary modules into Linux, ndiswrapper was always going to raise some eyebrows.

  • Story Type: News Story

Do you wish people would stop endlessly rehashing the whole question of "free" versus "open source?" Or do you enjoy the chance to talk about goals and philosophy?
