Age of Empires III and Photoshop CS3
I'm not so much a newbie to Linux as I am a newbie specifically to the Linux as a desktop scene. I've worked with servers - from the old RH 8 & 9 all the way to CentOS and Fedora. I recently purchased a computer with Vista Home Basic on it and I have been one of those to grow up on Windows simply because that's all that was around here in South Carolina for a while.
Since I started working with hosting, Linux has been so solid that I have been interested in using it as a desktop. However, my concern has always been compatibility with some apps and games. In my case, particularly CS3 and Age of Empires III (and the expansions). I know of GIMP, but I just don't like it all that much because of the interface. Maybe I can work on that, at least.
Anyway, I just wanted to see if anyone had these things working. In my research, Wine does seem to occasionally work for playing AoEIII, but I noticed a lot of various issues. I just don't want to go through installing all of this and it not work.
Thanks a lot!
