Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

Adobe won't ever release their apps on Linux, at least I don't believe so.

Why? It's because they know hardly anyone would buy it. Many poeople may tell Adobe they would want to USE Photoshop on Linux, but how many people would actually BUY Photoshop if it was released for Linux? People who use Linux, where everything is free, would just crack a trial version and be knowledgeable enough to stop any product activation from 'phoning home'. Adobe know this... so does every other large software co. that won't release Linux versions.

Businesses won't pay for it... they already purchased Macs for their design departments or have the Windows versions. I don't believe there could be very many 'businesses' for Adobe to target on Linux, certainly not enough to make it worth the development costs.
