Honestly it just reminds me of wfw 3.11 with a slightly more appealing hot dog theme. I think Win8 will go the way of vista, and I hope they take the core licensing scheme for SQL server with it.... but you didn't hear that from me...
For years I've been using various freeware apps for graphics (and just about everything else). And while the results were mostly good, on occasion something would go totally awry and reduce a graphics project to smoldering pixels (like the massive memory leak in Photo Pos Pro).
A few months back while using Photo Pos, I clicked Undo and up popped an image with a similar file name I had edited like two weeks before. And my current project was gone. I said a number of things that don't bear repeating here.
I still use Paint Shop Pro 9 (purely because it was the last version before Corel bought it). If X5 is anywhere near as good (and Corel haven't removed half the usability and added a heap of bugs as they generally do) it should be superb.
I think it ranks up there with Photoshop, but at a very small fraction of the price.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
