You're damn well right
despite all this posturing by the GIMP-fanboys, the fact is that photoshop pretty much blows it out of the water.
I use photoshop for plenty of design work, (although I tend to use the whole illustrator-indesign-photoshop combo, so linux has a fair way to go before it can meet that, sure there are some programs out there that do _some_ of the stuff I need to do, but on the whole they are all just too limited)

Submission + - Election farce in Scotland

Peil writes: "In the most closely contested elections in Scotland since devolution it appears that the electoral system in Scotland has failed badly on two counts.

Firstly, in addition to the first past the post system for electing Members of the Scottish Parliament, the Single transferable vote was brought in for local council elections. This has caused no end of confusion with an estimated 100k ballot papers being classed as void due to being filled incorrectly.(http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/6 623287.stm)

Secondly,the team providing electronic counting of ballot papers had a technical snafu which led to counts being suspended overnight — apparently the counting machines worked perfectly, it was when they fed he results back to a central database for collation that it all went pear shaped (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/glasgow_and_w est/6623239.stm)"
