In debian, the easiest way is to install kdm and then if you want, customize it to automatically log you in using KDE's Control Center.

You install kdm with:

apt-get install kdm

As with any other apt-get install, you need root access to install it. The install script will notice that you're currently using "gdm", and will ask you if you want "kdm" to be your default login manager instead. Say yes, and then at some point reboot your machine. (gdm will stay running as your login manager until you reboot.)

Adobe apps don't have to be ported to *nix - they were whelped and grew up in *nix (Irix, Slowlaris) and they abandoned those markets, but they still retain the cross-platform code. Assail Adobe with requests for Photoshop and Illustrator on Linux - all they need to do is cross-compile the darn thing.

I meant newer apps like photoshop album are written in qt, so it would be quite easy for adobe to recompile them for Linux.
