hello to all,
i've been searching for an application similar to corelDraw. i found Xandros but its like only another distro.. not as a desktop publishing..
i also found OpenOffice Draw, but for me its hard to manipulate it because im used in corelDraw.
any? thanks in advance.

Dia is a Visio-like drawing program, there's also a KDE-based equivalent whose name I forget. Probably sodipodi is closer to how Corel Draw works, though.

XFig is a graphical interface to fig, the classic UNIX figure generator. It's perfectly serviceable for making line drawings; I used it to illustrate "Jess in Action."

Actually, if you really want Photoshop, Disney got it working under WINE with CrossOver Office. There's hope that with major clients like Mickey wanting to run PS under Linux that some day Adobe will make it run native, but at least therre's some clout here that should reduce the usual non-support issues you'd get when running software on an blessed platform.
