Engineering programs are the biggest problems for me. CAD programs and simulation programs are expensive. Considering, I already bought one; and it was based on windows, I can not run those programs in Linux. I need to buy the Linux versions of those programs and either they are not exist in Linux, or I have to buy and I don't want to spend money for the same program once more.
Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
I especially like being able to show in an email step-by-step instructions with images of what I am talking about.
As far as I know, LibreOffice and OpenOffice cannot crop the image in the document, nor capture a full or partial screenshot (well, maybe full if you use the "Print Screen" button) so you have to use some other program to do it. It may not be difficult, but I find MS Office's version suits me well, is quick and easy, and done.
Actually with a lot of Microsoft software, things are pretty simple, easy and done. Using Windows Photo Manager and Movie Maker I was able to easily create a 10 and a 20 minute slideshow including music. The longest process was going through 2,000 pictures and determining which to use and to crop them to the focus of the picture.
Yes it worked, for the most part, with some hitches. I am trying to recreate it, for the most part, using KDEnlive to see whether it is a viable alternative.
Except for the initial start-up time (which is probably the .NET framework), Paint.NET has a simpler interface and still includes most of the tools I ever use than Gimp or Photoshop.
Are they perfect? No. Do I wish I could take parts and run them in Linux (merge the best of both worlds)? Heck, yeah!
i cant not answer, but i will lovely with ubuntu, i want to learn, learn, & learn about open sources and ubuntu.
Call itself Windows

The powerPoint replacement for SoftMaker Office , Presentations , is 100% compatible w/ PP way faster. , SM Presentations was using animation while PP users could only dream of them. Try it. If you keep it it is much less than MS Office and unless you are one of those people who actually use MS Publisher you loose nothing , gain speed and they take your word that you are only using 3 licenses per purchase.
