"Regarding image processing support for Ubuntu/Linux"
Greetings ! I am using Windows 7 for my image processing workflow which consists of View NX2, Lightroom 3 and then if any touching is required I use Photoshop CS3. But nowadays I am facing a problem that my Lappy's performance has slowed down considerably. So, I wonder if I switch over to Ubuntu/Linux then what softwares should I use to maintain the similar type of workflow for image processing.
I welcome any type suggestion which might include how to improve on the performance of my Lappy with Windows 7 OS without switching over to linux/ubuntu.

Just as a couple of starting thoughts, you might want to take a look at Corel AfterShot Pro (used to be Bibble) as well as Gimp. You can try both of them under Windows, and they both run natively under Linux as well.

Darktable! Love it for RAW processing, and its sophistication and features development are well supported.
For photo-manipulation, Gimp is great ... especially the new 2.7 development version with single window mode -- it's the precursor to the new stable release of 2.8, but 2.7 already has most of the yet-to-be-released 2.8 feature set.
Where Linux falls down is the sophistication of push-button auto-processing features.
I ran Adobe Lightroom alongside Darktable for a month ... ended up going with Darktable.

Hi all I have switched over to Ubuntu 11.04 and loving it despite of the fact that i am missing the user friendly environment and so used to attitude towards Lightroom3 and other softwares !! I hope to get used to Darkroom, GIMP and other photo as well as office document editing softwares on Ubuntu as soon as possible ..!! Thank you all !!
