Re: Photoshop on Ubuntu?

Another thing to consider is Adobe is currently cutting out about half of its current user base (and they use Mac and Windows). Why would they care about a handful of Linux geeks?

Re: Photoshop on Ubuntu?

Yes, you are right, I started this topic more than one year ago. Today is different situation. Adobe has to port complete CC to Ubuntu in the case they will decide to do so …

But the question is what is Apple going to do? Is there a future for OSX?

Re: Photoshop on Ubuntu?

iOS is one thing but you need OSX to create content for it.

Good point. But there is a Gate Keeper and App Store. Will Adobe, for example, offer their subscription to their CC via App Store and pay 30% to Apple in the case Apple will allow to install third party software via App Store only?

Re: Photoshop on Ubuntu?

Good point to you too! Apple is moving in that direction but currently offers an out for installing non-App Store apps. Hopefully the "walled garden" does not become a prison. And hopefully Adobe doesn't blow off Apple again.

Re: Photoshop on Ubuntu?

Isn't Android based on Linux? The future appears to be with the pads and the war now appears to be Win8/Andoid/iOS (I know; Blackberry too). Not sure if Adobe's planning on porting Photoshop to the pads any time soon though.

Re: Photoshop on Ubuntu?

Even so, there are some things you just need a desktop for. At least while the current older generations are alive! ;-)

Re: Photoshop on Ubuntu?

I would say that Ubuntu would be the best choice over other Unix/Linux distros.

Well, "based on Linux" and "running on X flavor of Linux" can be quite different things.

At the end of the day, though, the numbers have to be there. If Ubuntu doesn't have the numbers for clearly visible short-term potential revenue flow comparable to Windows or at least Mac, it's not gonna happen.

Right now Adobe's only Unix variant that I'm aware of is Apple OS X.

Re: Photoshop on Ubuntu?

These guys tested different GPUs and different operating systems for rendering in Blender. And Ubuntu is the winner:
