Re: Painted Wallpqapers

Gimp Thanks TheBlackPig! I just installed and am working on learing MyPaint, seems to be easier for me to learn although I realize it's limited. I use Gimp for anything photo related, perhaps a combination of both may be helpful. I find Gimp very good when using layers to combine a painting and a p...

What software do you use to create these? (If you don't mind my asking).
Please continue to show/ share your works.
Blue Meditation scene is very calming, I added it to my wallpapers.

Thanks,

Heart Attack - Please Read !!!!!!!

Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from t...

Why ???

I wondered why we have this section, after-all if you want a Debian based distro there isn't really any competition out there,
with a choice of KDE, XFCE4, Gnome, Gnome Classic, Cinnamon and even e17 for your desktop who could want for more ?
