Okay, the only recommendation is I have is to check out crossover, it's a really good product and I've never had trouble running flash mx. Its one of the very few software packages worth buying (I like flash, i would buy photoshop but, i'm a novice at it so the gimp works fine . Also, it has a student discount which is nice for us poor college students.
I'll second that. For $40 crossover (version of wine) takes out all the work and photoshop 7 (and MS Office) installs and works well. I recently installed photoshop here on my mdk 10 box... I also removed it soon after as I prefer Gimp, but that's another story :-)
i got it working under 20030813... theres a detail on how to get it working at frankscorner.org i think..
one thing i dont undserstand.. some progs work on certain vine verions right. so that means you will need to particular verions to run that prog...
Ok paying for the comercial verions that work well is an option if you have a credit card and some money.. but I still think we shouldnt depend on them for all our software to work..
Its like using windows .. I've been usiing it for so long, almost everything is done for you.. you dont learn much about your computer that way.
linux on the other hand you have to know much more to be able to use it. I think if most people dont depend on the comerical versions so much and use the free software wine would be a much better program then it is today.

Some people need to run a couple of windows apps like office or photoshop, and crossover is a good option for them - it runs the apps easy and painlessly. And if they can afford office or photoshop they can certainly afford crossover
Personally, of course, I consider things like Gimp and OOo to be better, but not everyone is in the same position.
