I am using Linux for some time now, mainly for technical tasks like servers, firewalls and real-time programming in C and other tasks in Tcl/Tk, but I still have not switched completely yet to Linux on the desktop. I want to and need to do so, because Windows is really a dead end to me.
The reason that I have not been able to switch completely is CorelDraw. I cannot remember ONE day for the last 10 years that I have not been using it at least once a day.
These are the main purposes I use Corel for:
- fancy signs: color blended backgrounds and fonts. Font stretching and align text along paths
- cards and invitations: imported bitmaps, fonts, blending bitmaps, transparency, lenses, graphic objects, color blends.
- logos, business cards: same thing
- technical illustrations: graphic objects, lines, curves, object stretching, arrows
- creating layouts and symbols for front panels, meter scales. Exact dimensioned objects, object transformation (move, sc

Debian vs. Gentoo which is better?

Which is better? Debian or Gentoo?
I am a new linux user and would like to install one of the two.
Gentoo seems like they have more of a marketing type slant, and therefore, I would think that the install might be slightly easier than with Debian, which only downside I can see is the install is fairly archaic.
For those with experience with both, please respond.
UNIX VS GNU which is better?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2010
hi there, i was wondering, why so many people use ubuntu, when it's GNU and well known MAC OS(and other) is UNIX. What's the difference in everyday life? (beside terminal commands and installation packages)
I met a man, who teach operating systems on university and he made me to forget windows and use linux, and he was using only UNIX. I tried to use for example openSUSE or Fedora, but non of that was my cup of tea, probably because i was using ubuntu for so long time and everything is so easy, for example to install mp3 codec(you need to know command on Fedora, ubuntu do it itself)
Can UNIX do something what GNU can't?

[SOLVED] rsync z vs. scp ... which one is faster over network?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 3, 2010
I often have to transfer huge data over our LAN from one computer to another. The size of the files varies and can be somewhere from 2 GB to 50GB or more! The only accepted connection protocol between machines are ssh; and rsync and scp are the only options available for copying over network (unison is not installed).
I usually use rsync with "-z" option to copy over network.
Does anyone have any idea if "rsync -z" is faster than "scp" for data transfer?

Windows vs Linux, which is more secure?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 5, 2004
First and foremost, I want to apologize for crossposting. I'm pretty much new to the linux world, and loving it. However, I had a question I wanted to pose to everyone and see if you guys can help me get some information. My boss is a BIG windows fan, and he knows that I've been tinkering with Linux. He keeps bragging about how he read in some article for some PC magazine where some security expert said that Linux has just as many security holes and prone to hacking as windows. He also added that the only reason windows has so many more hacks is because hackers hate it and it's more popular. Now, I would really like to ask you guys this. Is what he saying true? I thought I had heard that Linux was more secure. Do you guys know of any articles that I can read that say the opposite of what he's telling me. I'd really love to shut him up. lol.. THanks
