Works very good for wifi, I don't know about CDMA, but same as nicu, I
also heard a lot of good about the 0.7.x branch of nm.

One of the good points about many FLOSS applications is that they are
available on wide range of platforms. So you can use gimp both in Fedora
and Windows, dunno about blender. One another great FLOSS app that you
should consider learning is Inkscape [1]. It's for vector-based image
creation and I think it resembles Corel Draw a little with it's UI. It's
also pretty powerful, generally (IMHO) easy to use and has a Windows
port [2] available as well, which might be positive for you. There is
also a wide range of tutorials for it on various web {sites,logs}, like
here [3].
