LXer: Dear Adobe: Make Software for Linux Too


Published at LXer:

What if commercial software developers for popular Windows products sold Linux versions to a waiting market of open source users? Think in terms of paying a subscription fee to use a Linux version of Adobe's Photoshop image manipulation software, for starters.
