Default Free as in Beer?...Meet the Gimp

I was checking out some podcasts and ran across this;
http://meetthegimp.org/getting-the-old-shows/
I have been using the gimp for a while...I liked the first and second episode.

For those who have issues with mp4s;
VLC

got to love open source in win/mac/linux

Cheers
BeerCanuck

I have heard the expression free as in beer before..thought i would wikipedia it;

The Gimp is cool application..I was checking out Inkscape (vector graphic app) theres a good podcast tutorial at http://screencasters.heathenx.org/

Cheers

I use Inkscape when I need to make quick icons and buttons in my programming gig, I suck at artistic stuff but I can at least churn out some semi-useful stuff until design gets back to me.

I've been using the gimp for years, love it!
