    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.

    I've used the Gimp for nine years so I have no interest in Photoshop. Thar being said,I really do not 100 percent trust cloud services anyway.

    i've read quite a few articles and FAQ cause i was interested in what they are actually doing. reporting on this. was strange in some articles.

    Cloud is there mostly only to strengthen DRM. a buzzword. obviously this has nothing to do with cloud computing. their storage is limited to certain files only anyway.

    GIMP is good enough for me as well.

    Then again i imagine for some professional Photoshop is a better choice. many things in GIMP are quirky and akward. They are just done faster and easier in photoshop. while some advanced PS features are missing alltogether. but again GIMP is good enough for me. i use it on windows maschines as well. i can buy two computers for the price of photoshop.
    let's not go into tabets. their price doesn't make sense to me. probably cause i do not need it.

    Gimp has improved a great deal over the years, but Photoshop is such an accepted standard in the photo/prepress/design business that I don't believe we will ever see widespread adoption of Gimp in that community.

    The cost of Photoshop is less of a concern for businesses and actual pros than it might seem. For people who sink tens of thousand of dollars, and more, in hardware, office space, training, and staff, Photoshop is just another business cost.

    True. But some people think they have to have Photoshop just to create their memes. I'll bet Photoshop is overkill for a lot of the people using it.

    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?

    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.
