    hi guys,

    Dreamweaver 8
    FlashPro 8
    Photoshop cs2

    Yes it will, after some workaround.... It is better if you have windows installed on other disk, so that you could use those dll in wine...

    Even if it will not work on wine, it will work on CrossOver Office, which is a commercial product built on top of Wine, and could be considered as front-end and improvement to Wine.

    As I see from your post, you are using graphic applications, maybe you are web designer, in this case there are many graphical application available for linux that will allow you to work with raster and vector graphics. For example:

    Gimp, could be considered as Photoshop analogue in Linux or Quanta for web pages development and many others. Check for such kind of resources on freshmeat.net and sourceforge.net, and if you find something usefull, take a minute or two to post link to our Downloads Directory.

    nnvu is also good for web development although it may be considered to simple. im not shure if it would be adaquate but i felt comfortable using it to learn web programing.

    flash is not supported on linux as well as other platforms and could be replaced with java or javascript. mplayer or xine are dominant linux media players (the ladder is easier to use and install than the former in most cases) and gimp (gtk environment, there is another program for the kde environment) is good for photo editing.
