    GIMP is an absolute heap of shit. No matter which way you spin it. Inkscape is the go to free alternative to Photoshop.

    Herein lies the truth; heed no other.

    I've been waiting for WSL2 to come to the standard Windows channel for a while now (indeed for Docker) and I believe they mentioned it should have been in the april update but I'm having no luck enabling it. Are you on the fast track or using WSL1?
    It's meant to be coming early this month on the standard track, maybe even this week if I remember right.

    Inkscape is ok, but it's more Illustrator replacement, isn't it?

    And really, GIMP is fine. Just because you don't know your way around it doesn't make it bad.

    Krita? MyPaint? Though these are more painting programs than photo editing.

    WSL is in 2004 which drops this month. You can get it now by using the release preview ring in Windows insider

    Lenovo just greatly expanded their Linux range. That's a very interesting move, I wonder if it's tied to China making moves to ban foreign elements from their computers that I've been hearing about recently.

    As a small thank you, I just got a mid-tier laptop from them without a system installed and will be putting Mint on it later today, if it arrives.

    Probably a natural extension of their chromebook range. Lenovo chromebooks all support crostini, so I suppose this just cuts out the middleman.

    Very different machines and a very different audience, though.
