Google Google is funding work to ensure the Windows version of Adobe Systems' Photoshop and other Creative Suite software can run on Linux computers. "We hired CodeWeavers to make Photoshop CS and CS2 work better under Wine," Dan Kegel, of Google's software engineering team and the Wine 1.0 release manager, said on Google's open-source blog. "Photoshop is one of those applications that desktop Linux users are constantly clamoring for, and we're happy to say they work pretty well now... We look forward to further improvements in this area."

Yes, I could do that, but native Linux applications do not do what I need them to do, to the level of quality that I need.

I personally would love Adobe to port Photoshop to Linux, and in reality, there's no real reason why they can't do it. OS X has less users worldwide than Linux on the desktop, and if they can port to OS X, then they can sure as hell do it for Linux. They just won't do it, because the GPL scares them.

It's not my fault Adobe and others are plain idiots.

"OS X has less users worldwide than Linux on the desktop" - Really? Any figures to back that up? Or are you making it up to suit your needs? Quoting visitor statistics from one or two technically-targeted websites doesn't count, by the way.
