QGIS is an amazing Open Source GIS tool with many advance features such as spatial analysis, editing, and data management. However, I've been having issues installing into Mint Cinnamon 19.2. I'm seeing this error: Install QGIS The following packages have unmet dependencies: qgis: Depends: gdal-abi-2-2-3 but it is a virtual package Depends: python3-qgis (= 1:3.10.2+28bionic) but 1:3.10.2+28bionic is to be installed Depends: qgis-providers (= 1:3.10.2+28bionic) but 1:3.10.2+28bionic is to be installed Depends: qgis-common (= 1:3.10.2+28bionic) but 1:3.10.2+28bionic is to be installed. I was able to install the Flatpak version becuase it includes other libraries meceesary to run QGIS. https://community.linuxmint.com/software/review/org.qgis.qgis

QGIS keeps getting better. It does just about everything ESRI can do. Its unfortunate that using it with SDE is so tricky though. I try to use qgis for what it does best, which is basic viewing and analysis. Plugins are hit or miss but the basic stuff like ftools and gdal tools work ok for the most part. like every other GIS software out there, it works well for some things but is unstable in many other ways.

An extensive GIS suit for free, you can do everything in it!

Great GIS software, expandable and compatible with GRASS, SAGA and other scientific GIS tools (so it's not only for intermediate level, but it's great for advanced GIS analysis if the user configures it well). Lighter and faster than ESRI's ArcGIS, also has Python integration. Has a lot of add-ons/plugins. Beautiful Qt GUI.

Full functioning GIS that I use at the professional level. QGIS is also availble through Boundless - OpenGeo Suite as part of a professional suite for a fee.
