Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I haven't seen, so far, any support for Photoshop CS under wine or Crossover Office. Do you guys think this is just because its a new release, or is it something "permanent" due to the activation or other program structure? I really don't want to have to dual-boot on a consistent basis...
...And yes, I have tried googling, got inconclusive results. I don't trust myself trying this out since I know there are some workarounds necessary for other things already and I'm not at the level to discover workarounds myself. And please don't tell me to use the GIMP, I'm well aware of other options.
but did you at least attempt to install it?
if not, then why not even try to use instructions for installing PS7 ..
you got nothing to lose ...
and even if you do try and fail, post the errors, and there
cause there may be something obvious in the error message that someone
can assist you with ...
Due to other circumstances, mostly my laziness but other serious legitimate life stuff, I don't have a Linux install that I can try it out on, and won't have one any time soon unless I know this works beforehand.

use photoshop 7 then, it works very fine under wine for me.
That's not my question...and I don't have 7, I have CS. All I want to know is if CS can work, and if it can't, if there's something permanent in there that causes it to not work or if people just haven't gotten around to it yet.
I don't think it's anything permanent, but who knows? One thing is for sure, they (Adobe) weren't planning a "NON LINUX COMPATIBLE AT ANY CIRCUMSTANCES" strategy. It will work on Linux, eventually or not, with wine or not. The question you are asking is like asking which game will be the coolest shooter this year? Halo2, Doom3 or HL2?. They are not out yet so... how knows? . Unconnected but, personally, I hope Halo2 (the coolest atmosphere I've ever been, Doom is also great, I hate Half-Life) but then again... who knows?
Maybe. But sooner or later peoples will find a way around. Look at Steam (that terrible program released for the terrible game Half-life by the terrible company Valve). They made everything they could in their hands to make it non Linux friendly (with exception of servers, which they believe Linux is the only thing designed for). It is so terrible non-portable piece of garbage that it requires Internet Explorer to run... But somehow, after few days, peoples got around it and now you can install Steam, if you install IE. Maybe their next Steam will ask also for Windows Media Player and Gator...
I believe that Photoshop CS (particularly, I've never heard of it before...I started to be dated when it comes down to Windows stuff now..ghehe) will sooner be supported, maybe not officially, but there will be a way to get around it. Maybe it's not yet supported because:
1 - It costs much(I dunno how much, but as usual...), and Photoshop 7.0 is very stable and supported. Very much like if you have a Office 2000 running, there's not need for XP.
2 - Many Linux users prefers to use the Gimp instead of Photoshop, well, because it runs out of the box and it's as good (or better) then Photoshop, unless you are a Gandalf Wizard of image editing. In fact, if you are Gandalf, you should not even be using Windows or Linux... there is where MacG5 comes in .
Again, it's all personal opinions, nothing is official and everything is based on the "perhaps" concept
Yep, just checkin it out since I'm still new at Linux...the Steam story is particularly reassuring
I do Photoshop over GIMP because most of my work is photography related, whereas I find the GIMP to be more oriented towards original from-scratch art type stuff- no filter preview pretty much does it for me before you get started anyway . And anything Apple is the most overrated POS on the face of the earth, don't get me started there .
