Mike Pinkerton writes: "Camino version 0.8 was released tonight. In addition to performance, stability, and rendering improvements inherited from Mozilla 1.7, Camino 0.8 adds a Google Search bar in the toolbar; a more-compact download manager; an entirely rewritten bookmark system, capable of importing Safari, IE, and Mozilla bookmarks, with Rendezvous and Address Book integration and multi-level undo support; session history on back/forward buttons; greatly improved cookie management; and many more changes.

"Since the last release of Camino, the following upgrades have been made to the underlying Gecko engine, and are now available in Camino: incremental, type-ahead find in the content area, automatic size-to-fit for image images larger than the viewable content area and numerous performance and web page rendering enhancements, XSLT support, as well as a large number of bug-fixes."

Grab the release from the FTP site and check out the release notes for more information on what's new.

The Gimp 2.0 is much, much better than the original version. I use layers, filters and image correction to process all my digital photos. You have to keep in mind different OS's are better for different reasons. If you absolutely had to have Photoshop and digital film editing than Linux would probably be a poor choice. If you are more of a web developer/programmer and use files produced by a design team then Linux makes a good choice since you could take advantage of numerous development tools that Linux comes with. Right now I am using Fedora linux core 2 with a nightly build of Mozilla Firefox with the GTK2 options and I have smooth, antialiased fonts that looks better than Firefox running under Windows XP, in my opinion.
