sick of wine
i'm new at your forums , it really looked very great one
simply, my story is that i'm really sick of that wine,i've read hundreds of threads in this forum and some others but without but until now i didn't get any clear idea of how to deal with it and use it
i'm running a windows and i want to switch to linux as quick as possible but the greatest problem facing me is running applications on linux

What is it you're trying to run? The way I see it is like this...If you are going to switch to Linux do so with a full attempt to use native programs. If there is something that you can't replace then try Wine. If it's a case that you want to run Linux but are bringing everything from Windows except the operating system then it's likely the case that you'd be better off with Windows.
The latest Wine builds are pretty good without any setup from what I've seen. Check out the link techieMoe posted but the gist of it is you launch the Windows executable with an application called 'winelauncher'. It is a command line tool, but if you wish you can associate .exe files with it for ease (some would argue this is not a great idea from a security point of view).

Aptana Studio and Quanta (which is part of the kdewebdev package. Also BlueFish and Screem are decent alternatives. As for Photoshop, take a look at GIMP and Krita. The only thing I dislike about GIMP is the interface (multiple windows). Another good program, especially for SVG stuff is inkscape. If none of those tools suite your needs, you can always dual boot.
