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.

I'm not going to fork out more money for VMWare. And I've tried Bibble Pro, in all honesty, the quality of the files aren't that great, and it's UI is shocking.

VMWare server is free and will work nicely for your need to run Windows on a Linux box.

Not for photoshop. PS requires lots of CPU and graphics speed, and VMWare can't provide that to a full speed. If you are a photographer, you better run Windows or OSX natively.
