    Yep, I noticed that - which is why I added it to the top of the list ;-).

    To be fair though, others that are missing:

    I hope you don't mind me amending your list a bit. Some important ones were missing, and Affinity Photo, while a RAW processor, lacks any DAM functionality, which means it's not a true alternative to...

    Avoid Open Office. Libre Office is the actively developed branch, and Open Office is more or less dead. Most OO devs switched to LibreOffice.

    Very sorry to hear that.

    It's a grey area. Messiah is now (I assume) abandonware, and while it is still copyrighted, it is safe to say that the original developers no longer track its copyright, nor do they seem interested...

    Sorry to hear that guys. It's tough for freelancers.

    I am lucky to be tenured at a technical college, and classes have moved online. More prep work, less travel time, so it evens out.

    Ah. The original post was meant to be sarcastic in the first place. Text-only comms remove subtle intent, unfortunately, so I did not catch that.

    Both would require a complete rewrite: (1) of Lightwave (Layout), (2) of the new 2018/2019 render code.

    Neither is possible within the short span of time since 2019's release.

    But who knows?...

    ...because the latest jump in rendering hardware evolved on the GPU. If a modern render engine does not support this, it is sort-of handicapped for a lot of work.

    Is everything tiny? I don't own a 4k monitor (yet), so I cannot check myself. On a Mac I used it at work on 4K screens without any issues.

    The icons can be enlarged a few steps in the prefs.
