i cannot live without adobe, so no linux for me :) i may be wrong but i don’t see linux machines as potent designer workstations. i must mention that i work with both mac and pc (w7), and at work i have a linux machine and although there are a lot of super software like Komodo for coding, i hate the design software made for linux. for any editing there i use my notebook :DD personal opinion of course.

I develop in Linux, and I use a combination of The GIMP and Inkscape for my graphic design needs. For many things this is adequate, but some more advanced techniques are difficult. I tried running Photoshop through Wine but didn’t have much success and the instability made me go back to GIMP .

The only thing I use Windows for is IE testing :)
