Our girl Brighid here loves Linux, especially on our Psyborg Extreme Graphics Workstation. Everyone admits that Red Hat is cool, and Brighid is a cool gal. But lets face it, what good is a cool operating system without programs to do what you want on it. So here are some links to some great Linux based graphics programs, so you can actually take advantage of that really expensive high end NVidia Quadro FX graphics card that comes with our workstation, and, of course, justify the expense to your boss. If you like this or some of our other stuff, please link to us.
