Yes, this is what I am worried about. Given that alot of effort has been put into improving Paint etc, as part of Select/Adjust it seems a waste for this to be duplicated.
My other concern is about what people can actually get and what people will still need to pay for. Will it be possible to get hold of the full OS, or would you still need to buy this? I can't see people being that keen to develop the OS if it is the latter.
