Produce Creative Suite for Linux

  • Idea
  • Updated 2 years ago
  • Not Planned
This isn't a new idea, but please produce Creative Suite or at least some applications at a time for the Linux OS, particularly Ubuntu which appears to be growing very fast.
This is an untapped market for Adobe and would mean absolutely explosive growth in support for Linux and Adobe software on the powerful Linux OS.
This would be a big feat, I'm not denying that, but nothing is impossible. Just think of the possibilities.

It would be wonderful to work on my favorite system can use all the graphics in Abobe provides that, gotta keep Windows installed on my computer just to use Photoshop and InDesign ...
It would be wonderful to have the Adobe package for Linux, Ubuntu in my case ...

Dear is a very good initiative to have this space power.
Every designer or user of Adobe you want to start on linux stops him mainly for not agreeing to these wonderful software, if the company had to integrate their products to many people would use Linux operating system.

I hope all these comments help the Linux community to grow and enhance the system.

Best regards from Chile.

In developers' discussions on the topic to port Adobe Photoshop to Linux on heise.de, the main assumption was that the old and out-dated code base of Photoshop makes it almost impossible to port it to Linux, at least not at reasonable costs (early codebase from 1987 and non-unix codebase since 1993). A complete rewrite of Photoshop would be more cost-effective, but this will not be done for Linux' sake.

In other words: Adobe seems to be not able to port Photoshop to Linux. It is time to think about serious alternatives for Linux.

This actually seems like they are being paid off by another company to drop Linux support (Just recently Flash) / not develop for Linux

Another vote for Creative Suite on Ubuntu! The cost of Windows upgrades, and their nonreliability, eats into arguments I make to my company for the cost of a Creative Suite upgrade. Ubuntu works, uses few resources, and is user-friendly.

I have fewer worries when using a system such as Ubuntu, and a greater sense of security for my graphics files and projects. I have fewer worries for crash-and-burns, and a greater sense of security for my data.

I currently do graphics and documentation. Give us Ubuntu.

I am a graphic designer of now 13 years! I work in all environments except Linux professionally. I have chosen to learn Ubuntu now and love it. I work in Print and Web design. The non-option of Adobe on Linux is disheartening. As well Adobe's port of Flash on Linux is straight up CRAP. Most software is designed in Linux environments (Java/C) as I worked for a global software developer and tested in Windows. And there's no Adobe design tools for Linux? I am now going to start removing my hard earned $$ and start to use competitors software as at this point Adobe has real competition in the market. With my skill set, it will now move and stay moved till Adobe fixes this. Apple is starting to slide and I don't wanna slide with them.

I have cs5.5 for windows running on one of my workstations. I run ubuntu on another of my workstations and would love to have cs5.5 for it too. I want to build a brand new production workstation in Linux and, but will have to go with MS because of this issue. Which sucks, because Linux is much better then windows.

If their is creative suit for Linux I would actually for the first time pay for a software via Ubuntu software center. I am sure Canonical would love to get involved and support adobe as would I alongside many users. Its true Linux users don't like the idea of paying but for this it is just worth it. Adobe + EA + Valve + Canonical = something that will give Bill Gates the shivers. Now I know coding is expensive stuff but all (I think) Ubuntu users ,like me, are asking for is Photoshop and After Effects. Of course others like Illustrater... would be awesome and so welcomed open heartedly.

I was a lecturer in Photoshop for my city college for years but for me, Ubuntu is a better operating system. Now I have no choice but to teach other software. Do the right thing Adobe and port CS over to Linux - how hard could it be to move from a BSD based system to a Linux based system?

Agreed, I've been running Win 8 on my Mac and it's a nightmare. And, now that Apple's decided to remove their 17 inch laptops from their lineup without so much as a peep about a roadmap, I can't count on Apple to be a stable professional platform either.

It's time for Linux Ubuntu, etc. to shine. Miscrosoft and Apple are pretty much paving the way for us all. I've had it with both of them.
