Wonder if anyone here except me is using Linux or other *nix based systems as primary OS?
And if so what graphic packages you're using when working with graphics?
I'm using GIMP, Hugin, gThumb, Blender and NeatImage through Wine.

Yes, I'm using a *nix OS: MacOS X. My graphic package is PhotoShop CS3.

The best of both worlds ;D

I'm using Linux. Centos and Slackware with Gimp as primary photo editor. I'm satisfied.

Best regards

How do you do monitor color profiling? I was reading on one of the forums that it can be complicated under Linux?

it's not that bad, as in Linux you have access to almost anything and can do many things sometimes easier than in Windows, I was going to write my own tutorial about monitor calibrating but here is good one which tells how it could be achieved:

Didn't read this article for ages so don't remember if in time it was written colorimeters was working under Linux, but from what I know now it's possible to use certain models, so you don't have to rely solely on your eyes for calibration.
