I have been a Mac user for most of my life. I used to love their products but lately, their business policies do not sit well with me and I think it is time for a change.
BTW, I do not consider Windows an option by any stretch of the imagination.
I use my Mac for work and leisure.
Are there any Linux applications that are up to par with:
Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects, Apple's Garageband, iDVD, a good web browser (Safari/Firefox), a good email client, a good jukebox app, M$ Powerpoint, M$ Word, Apple's Keynote, Cinema 4D, Apple's iChat, a good font management app, Apple's iCal, etc... (I am not a gamer, so I don't need any games on my computer). Please note the emphasis on "up to par". (For example someone told me regarding 3D apps, Linux users like Blender. Being a Cinema 4D user, Blender seems a bit like a nightmare to learn and the end results aren't that great).
Also, how does Linux play with Android phones?
Is Ubuntu/Linux the OS for me, or should I keep looking?
Thank you very much in advance.
