I'm in the graphic business since early 2009 and until now I haven't needed a graphic tablet, but change is coming ! I have just bought a Wacom Bamboo Fun "Pen & Touch" (second generation). To keep in my open-source choice, I will use it with Krita and Gimp instead of Photoshop ! I also expect some fun and useful use in Inkscape and Blender.
Any advice and shared stories about graphic tablets are welcome ! I'm all new in this, and I'd love to learn from you all.
