2010 Poll

The poll title simply says '2010'. What exactly would I be voting on? It's ambiguous, at least to me.

re: 2010 poll

the year in general. 2009 sucked in a lot of areas, especially the economy. Do you think 2010 will be better, worse, or about the same as than 2009?

China, Singapore, Taiwan

Based on these results, Tux Machines readers are optimists.

2010 will be a good year... for China, Singapore, Taiwan...

Best Free and Open Source Alternatives to Adobe Illustrator

Adobe is a large multinational computer software company with over 22,000 employees. Its flagship products include Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, XD, Acrobat DC, and the Portable Document Format (PDF). The products are wrapped up and marketed as the Creative Cloud, a subscription-only way of accessing more than 20 desktop and mobile apps and services for photography, design, video, web, UX, and more We are long-standing admirers of Adobe’s products. They develop many high quality proprietary programs. It’s true there are security and privacy concerns in relation to some of their products.
