    As for the rest of Calligra, I've no idea, LibreOffice has always worked fine for me.
    Try painter x.

      What's that, some kind of windows program? Nope, I'll stick with the best, thank you.

      I just got Krita updated to 2.6, everything looks great so far - no huge changes in the interface but lots of improvements under the hood.

        Painter is also an OSX program and Painter is the best.

          I've used Painter and Photoshop in the past and honestly, short of a few bugs, Krita takes the cake for painting. There ARE a few brushes and filters the others have that Krita lacks, but Krita's brush system has a wider range of possibilities than even Painter (NOTICE: last version I used was Painter 11, not 12). Painter and Photoshop both run much slower as well (Painter 11/CS5 vs Krita 2.6), at least in my experience. I would compare with newer version of Photoshop and Painter, but I'm on Linux and I don't care much. Krita, MyPaint, Inkscape, Gimp, and Blender are more than enough for my artistic abilities.

            Yessss. I don't use Mypaint or Blender though, I find that anything I could do in Mypaint I can just as easily do in Krita, and I'm not really into 3d that much.

            But really, I don't see any need for photoshop, except for a very few niche applications that still can't be done with free software (I think there was some stuff having to do with photography and raw processing, but I'm not sure). Krita also saves in PSD now, so that's one less roadblock for linux artists.

            Krita's brush system really is awesome, there just isn't anything comparable. I only wish they'd remove that damn sketch brush, because it keeps me from doing anything productive, wasting all my time just playing with the endless possibilities of it....

              Mypaint has infinite canvas and the ability to limit the gamut of your colour palete which Krita doesn't currently have. I would say Painter has a comparable brush system - Krita has some brush engines that Painter doesn't and vice versa. I think that krita has better workflow than the most recent version of painter I owned (8) and I suspect that is true of the current version. Krita has hands down the best fullscreen paint mode I have come accross to date.
