    Can i run these programs on Linux


    I have just installed Ubuntu 5.04 to my harddrive after using it on a CD for a while but was wondering if i can still run the following applications in it. I know there are programs that allow you to use windows programs in Linux but am yet to come across them anyway the Major programs I require are
    CorelDRAW Graphics suite 11
    Adobe photoshop Elements 3
    Adobe CS
    Adobe premier Elements 1
    Adobe premier pro
    Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8
    iTunes
    ICQ 5.04
    Skype
    They are the programs i really require to run in Linux if possible.

    Check out WINE:

    There's a forum on this board for it, too:

    i know that iTunes is a no (try amarok instead, but you will have to install kde which is about 70 odd mb), skype i think is available somewhere. i am not sure about the others. Photoshop can be covered by using The GIMP. IMHO, gimp is better than photoshop.

    i know there is gimpshop which is gimp modified to look like photoshop, but i dont know if that is for linux (i know its for windows though).

    i am unsure about the others.

    hope this helps

    Am already using GIMP in windows thats kinda why i chose to install Linux also as I already have heaps of Programs running in windows that are used in Linux eg. Open Office, Mozzilla, GIMP. If possible would like to run Photoshop and Gimp together as i do in windows if I cant i can live with that
