    As far as I can tell, they're just switching to digital distribution (and using the 'cloud' buzzword, and getting more control over what their customers can do), so this won't affect porting it to Linux.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory solution to your problem.

    Well, the comments to the article don't make it sound too promising.

    Adobe products ported to Linux *and* only available for annual or monthly subscription fees?

    Never.

    I guess the rampant piracy of Photoshop has started to catch up with Adobe.

    At one time, I'm pretty sure Adobe ignored piracy of PS for good business reasons. Its principal market for these products is professional designers and studios who play full price. Piracy enabled prospective young graphics designers to become adept at using Adobe products. When they later became employed, they expected to find licensed copies of these products on their desktops. In part, the continuity of Photoshop's dominance came from its widespread piracy. Maybe that model is not doing so well these days?

    ^Isn't that Red Hat's business model with Fedora?

    Well people will still be pirating the old versions because of brand recognition if nothing else, and since I assume CS7 will be similar to the older versions apart from the platform and mode of paying that would still have the effect of locking them to PS. Reading the comments a few angry long time PS users said they were moving to GIMP. This would be good news if more follow suit.

    No.

    Red Hat sells support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, on a subscription basis, as is common in that arena. Red Hat does not sell Red Hat Enterprise Linux. RHEL source is on Red Hat's servers for anyone who wants it. CentOS and Scientific Linux are the two primary examples of Linux releases that are essentially recompilations of RHEL.

    Fedora is a Linux distribution sponsored by Red Hat. From their perspective, it is a proving ground for new technology that may or may not someday be rolled into RHEL. Fedora is cutting edge. RHEL just the opposite.

    Both Red Hat and the Fedora project are strong and ardent FOSS advocates and participants, and have been for years.

    There will be no CS7. There will be the first CC instead

    I meant more with regard to winning hearts and minds. The idea being that their goal is to motivate people to become Fedora users who will contribute to the project (more technical than average) and maybe get interested in spending money on lucrative Red Hat certification. All of which will reduce the market price of RHEL/CentOS sysadmins in the long run and encourage the adoption of RHEL in businesses.
