Hi,
Does anyone know which program I should use
to draw stuff on OSX?
I've been using paint on windows but i can't find
a similar program on my OSX panther.
I have a eMac, 1GB with 512ram

They should but in a controlled environment some admin jobsworth could very well have deleted it from the machines.

No:

The "pro" (Powerbook, Powermac) machines never came with it and it doesn't come with any intel based macs.

They bundle test versions of MS Office & iWork instead.

Yes, you will need X11

i liked it. It doesnt stand up to photoshop. but it can open .psd, but more nicely, if you like it on your mac, itll run on ANYTHING

its M$ paint x 100
