Ah, perhaps I should expand the width of the subject field in my mail  
viewer.  :)  I usually just glance at the subject, and the body of  
the email said nothing about FOSS software.  From the contents of the  
body, iPhoto would fit most of the bill (although you would probably  
need to use it in conjunction with iWeb to really get the "blog/ 
gallery jammed together" part).

In any case, FOSS runs on other platforms besides linux, which was  
also part of your sarcastic comment.

Lastly, handing out alternative solutions is widely done on plug.   
Witness the many threads of "How do I do x with Fedora Core" and  
people respond with "Use debian" or "Use gentoo". :)
