Is open software the only option...

that we can trust?

There are many projects in image processing history, that disapear, and left users alone. Photostyler, Picture publisher, rawshooter - just name a few.

Changes on the market or some decisions taken by managers wipes the product, or puts it out of range of many.

After recent experiences I am almost sure, that free and open software is the only option. I hope that Gimp finally become mature piece of software. I'm also waiting for this kind of raw processor (lightzone maybe, or ufraw). Digikam can be alternative for image management...

I'm  about to donate creators of free software rather than buy cs6 upgrade ( anyway, final one, as cluod is no option for me ).

What do You think?
