    Are you able to get Photo shop CS5 to run with Linux?

    I'm really new to linux and my new classes require me to use CS5. I don't want to switch back to windows if I don't have to.

    As long as you are running WINE, you should be fine. In the last few years WINE developers have been working pretty dilligently on making sure PS will run... Its not perfect, but you should be fine.

    Thanks! I was afraid I'd have to rebuild my desktop just to run CS5 on.

    Just as a "maybe you should know".... Wine does go out of its way to make sure cracked (pirated) software dosen't work. So if you "got a copy from your friend" you'll probably run into problems.

    Yeah, it looks like I made a poor assumption that older versions of PS would work similarly as the newest version.

    I'd do it anyway, set it up as a dual boot desktop.
