Is Linux Production really as BAD as EposVox says it is?!?

My argument isn't that Linux itself and Linux-based distros in general aren't up to the challenge, my argument is that there is NO open source, drop-in replacement for Adobe products. There's an insurmountable learning curve to Linux for someone who lives in and earns a living through the Adobe workflow.

* KdenLive is great, but it's not Adobe Premier.
* Audacity is hardly a replacement for Audition.
* GIMP and Krita (while they're in many ways just as capable as Photoshop) require UNLEARNING and RELEARNING a ton of things.

We, as the Free and Open Source community, can solve these issues. But even when KdenLive reaches feature parity with Premier, it will never be a *sit down and work* solution. It will still require a ton of unlearning and adapting to the software's quirks.
