The computer has been a tremendous help in the studio. It’s my cartoon assistant, bookkeeper, research assistant, etc.
However, the really big advantage with my computer is having it run Linux.
The Linux operating system has allowed me to implement some really terrific software programs. (Not to mention that it’s more stable and secure then Windows and isn’t affected by Windows’ malware, viruses and Trojans.)
And the big plus is, these programs are Open Source and absolutely free. And many of these software applications are every bit as as powerful and feature rich as their commercial counterparts.
