Making the move to GNU software
Hi everyone,

I'm a software games developer, and recently become very fascinated by the Free Software movement, and all that is GNU. I get Stallman, I love the idea.

Developers should be paid for the work that they do, and the fact that source code should all be public domain. I want to only make free software (and hopefully still be able to pay the bills too).

Anyway, as part of spirit of free software, I've been making the move to free software, (hopefully one day I'll be able to remove Windows for good, but its hard for game devs).

I'm now using GIMP daily for general gamedev related image activities.

There are some small annoying things in GIMP which I would like to tweak, but I'm so happy that GIMP being free software, I (and we all) have full privilege to modify and improve the software as we so want (hay even for non-coders!!). Something Photoshop users can only dream of. Its just a sad fact that not that many graphic designs and digital artists understand such freedoms.

Anyway, I'll make a post somewhere regarding my wishes for GIMP, and would definitely like to see what people think. I'm even up for donating some time of my developer skills to help out. I'd certainly rather do that than pay 1000's+ to some big company that don't respect my computing freedom.

Anyway, thanks for reading. I'm happy to receive IMs from anyone.

Cheers,
Daniel Downes
