I don't quite get why a company (that has a long list of things
linux is suposedly lacking in) is not able to port their "professional"
software to any 64bit (or other) environment.

supports Sparc on servers: cost-benefits analisys does not look
very compelling. As you can see the main complaint of Adobe (just like any
commercial company) is "too many platforms". It's not just "IA32 vs x86-

these things raise costs and make the platform less compelling to port
