Linux is an operating system in progress with many tastes. You have Debian,
Redhat, Suse, etc. Linux also has a wide range of windowmanagers (the
graphical interface, better known as GUI), like GNOME, KDE, FVWM2,
AFTERSTEP, etc. Each windowmanager has its own look and feel and its won
programs. There's no standard as in Windows. Maybe, at this moment, there
are no applications equal to Frontpage or Netscape Composer, but development
is on its way and , yes, there are programs to create webpages for the Linux
If you are already using Linux, look out for StarOffice 5.2. It's a free
(yes I mean it !!!) office suite (compatible with MSOffice 97 and 2000)
that allows you to create webpages with frames, java, and all the nice
stuff you would like.
Conclusion: in some aspects, Linux might not be as far developped as you
would like, but new applications are are on their way. And now comes the
most important thing: most Linux appliations are free!!! You have to take a
look for yourself if you want to go on with Windows or just abandon Windows
and start with Linux.
Success with your choice!!!
