Would you stop that free market bullshit?

It's ***NOT*** "free market bullshit". It's ***YOU*** taking control of your purchaseing and buying products that work for you, rather than bitching, moaning, and complaining about Microsoft. If you ***LIKE*** to bitch, moan, and complain, I imagine that you are married or getting a divorce. But most people AVOID bitching, moaning, and complaining. So buy stuff that works for you and leave the rest behind. UNLESS you are like RMS, and just like to BITCH MOAN AND COMPLAIGN about Microsoft.

Raving lunatic extremists of any movement are stupid.

Sure, of course.

But we should also be concerned about unintended consequence of genetic engineering. For example there are notable issues with the kinds of genetic engineering going on with plats such as corn and grain. We can debate the health concerns about genetically engineered crops, but there is no question that issues of cross pollen contamination to non-genetically engineered crops is an issue. There is some question about engineered salmon interacting with wild as well. Another example might be the continued vaccine resistant virus strains, and resistance to antibiotics.

Do not use, or can not use?

Don't *want* to use. Because (at this point in its development) GIMP often does not do what they want, and many find the UI unusable. Things could change, and I would embrace GIMP is it did what I do with PS, and did it well. Adobe is the sole reason I still have a Windows machine (yes, I could get PS for OSX, and may very well do that).
