Hi everyone,
I have a friend who wants to become a Linux convert - IF - I can steer him to the most suitable one for doing photographic work,
I know that GIMP is the main app for working on photos, but is there one distro that is better than the rest for that.
I do thank you in advance.

Hi 70 TC probably list what he normally does and what software he uses , is it stills or also video editing .

There is Linux software alternatives and they are common to nearly all Distro

Nothing about video came up in our conversation, so I ass-u-me that it's strictly stills.
Am I right then to guess that almost any Lin Distro will work fine?
Thanks to you also.
