Of course if Microsoft undermines standards’ interoperability…

    I agree these are alternatives, although for the larger solutions, I would argue that none of them are comparable for professional users, besides maybe Blender. I know many animators that use it, but it’s more like a tool for a specific purpose, while they also simultaneously use many other proprietary programs.

    Super.

    All are great. Except : Inkscape is decent, except that it’s nowhere near illustrator. It’s got issues. Issues that maybe casual users can tolerate. A more demanding user won’t.

    Gimp really isnt a substitute for photoshop. It’s slow, unstable and ux is dogshit. Too bad.

      There are people saying Inkscape is better. I personally find it completely hard and unintuitive, just like GIMP. But I use both

      Gimp is all I know, I can’t compare to Photoshop, and I love it! ❤️

        It’s a lot more fully featured. It’s allows for a lot more complex mixing and editing. It supports a lot more plugins including virtual instruments. Audacity is good for basic recording and mixing but Ardour takes it to the next level in terms of versatility and control.

    And it’s not just for Windows. That’s pretty much a list of the default choices for my operating system.

    So… op complains about Microsoft’s interoperability standards, and then proceeds to post a list of apps which mostly use their own too 😂

    There’s a lot of good software in there… but misleading caption…

      The big difference is that formats used in open source software is open source.

    In addition to Joplin, Logseq is really great too, though with more of a text-first, outline based, zettle approach.
