Of course the usual question came up about when will we get Photoshop and
various other Adobe products for Linux and the answer was something like,
"when there are enough Linux users to guarantee sales of at least 50
Adobe bought the rights to Photoshop in 1990, when there were barely 50
million Macs around in the whole world (if that many). Presumably not
single one of their owners would have been interested in buying Photoshop.
And that was back when Photoshop was a fairly simple
program and still needed most of its code written. Nowadays they have a
codebase that only requires porting and they need 50 million copies
guaranteed sold? I want to be an Adobe engineer, they must be so well
