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'.}

You know, you are 100% correct.

After all, as an example, Linux Genuine Advantage ...

{ Adobe know this... so does every other large software co. that won't release Linux versions. }

So what about the large software companies that do release Linux versions of proprietary applications? Including, BTW, the largest such company, IBM?

Seriously, it won't be long before Adobe lose any opportunity to establish a market for Photoshop on the Linux platform, as Krita in KOffice 2.0 under KDE4 (which will be available on Windows as well as Linux) catches up then passes it by.
