People have for a long time not switched to Linux because there is no Adobe Photoshop or Premier available for Linux, programs which have become pretty much standard in the Graphics & Multimedia industry. But this may soon all change…
A discussion and request for the Adobe Creative Suite (including Photoshop) on Linux has been going on here for quite some time.
Recently Adobe Employee Carey Burgess stated “The request is now most definitely on the radar of our engineering teams, so it [Linux version] can be considered for future development.”
Adobe now would like anyone who wants Adobe Creative Suite Products such as Photoshop & Premier to be produced for Linux to fill out a Feature request form. He also stated that you must “submit a request [form] for each product that you would like to see developed for Linux. (If you want them all, then show it by submitting one for each product)”.
So go ahead fill out a few forms…just make sure you stress that you “want the product for Linux”. 🙂
