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.

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'.

Hahaha, are you really that naive? People who use Windows do it all the time. I can assure you that the majority of the software installed in PCs with Windows in the world is pirated. And that "People who use Linux" thing is really hilarious. I think people who currently use Linux don't need Photoshop. Otherwise they wouldn't be Linux users, would they? So, we can say that most designers are Windows or OSX users. Some of them would be willing to switch to Linux if Adobe ported Photoshop. If those designers are honest people who choose to buy original software (even thought getting a cracked version is the easiest thing in the world) they will keep doing it in Linux. Honesty is not determined by the OS you use, is it?
