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.

tsk tsk. I'm quite competent at using GNU/Linux thank you very much.

I didn't say that Ubuntu sucked for everyone, I said that it doesn't suit my needs and that Linux in general doesn't work for me because of a variety of current issues (and that I hoped that those issues would get solved, so that I could return to using GNU/Linux).

Photoshop CS2 is not arcane, I'd wager a solid bet than more people use Photoshop than use GNU/Linux ;-) Other software such as Canon's DPP, or Capture One Pro are lesser used, although a lot of people have Canon digital cameras these days (DPP is also used with Canon digital compacts, not just DSLRs).

I personally detest Microsoft Windows for a variety of reasons, so please don't make me out to be a Windows troll, which I am most certainly not. If you want to be a Linux troll, go for it, I need a good laugh from time to time :-)
