    Most people don't use PhotoShop anyway, you have people who use it thinking that the whole universe revolves around them so the fact that PS doesn't work on Linux seems to be a big deal, it is not.

    PhotoShop is not a common software by any account. For many who do use it they use may be < 10% of the functions and most likely from unlicensed source (I don't use the word "pirated", there is no moral equivalence to killing people at high sea while robbing them) Who would pay $700 usd for something like that unless it is needed for professional work?

    I am actually happy that PS is not available in Linux so that free Softwares like Gimp would have a chance to develop and mature, otherwise many people would be using unlicensed copies of PS and this would hurt FOSS development.

    You can say it about every weak point of Linux.
    I think games can boost Linux popularity a lot.

    There's no such thing as pirated GIMP.
    Too many cooks don't spoil the broth with Linux, and Ubuntu is the best broth!

    Open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
    sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
    Open Movie Player or similar and enjoy.

    Of course Ubuntu can play, rip, author, copy, burn, etc. DVDs!

    That is NOT true. While many people like those games, many people also like platformer and puzzle games!

    All that Windows has that Linux (Ubuntu) has is more apps, and more viruses.

    Any Trojan can infect any file on linux with a windows-based virus. Trojans can not be stopped unless you have a firewall to stop them, as they are not "malicious" software.

    Anyway, I'd play more RPGs, if linux had any. (Not The Mana World, or Planeshift.)

    Wish Eden Eternal would work with Wine.

    Nah, but AutoCAD, functioning graphics drivers and stuff could.
