Anyne who is in pre-press who is that good a programmer needs some career
counseling. ;-)

Photoshop 5.5 has web graphics added. And I don't find it all that
expensive. I'd hate to rely on an open standard piece of software that
anyone could modify. I'd rather have one set of dedicated programmers, not a
bunch of hobbyists. I think the Linux movement is alrady starting to run out
of steam, and Windows 2000 is the Borg. Me? I'm going OS X.
