will photoshop run on linux or windows7

  losmil 16:35 04 Aug 2010

I am running photoshop cs2 on xp at the moment but I expect eventually I may have to change the OS.
Has anyone managed to run cs2 on either windows 7 or, preferably, linux?

I am running Photoshop 6 on Windows 7. I'm not sure but I think it is earlier.

thanks jb, looks like the right direction as far as cs2 with w7, Iwill just have to see if I am clever enough to run the virtual mode!

There are many people that successfully run Photoshop in Linux, but it has to be done via WINE.

Also to add to the above, You could use free Gimp in Linux though it may be a hard learning curve

diesse, not strictly this thread but thank you, I am the idiot you sorted out and who forgot to load the M/B drivers.
thankyou everyone else, the short answer to my question seems to be answered and it is possible to run cs2 (cannot afford another version anyway) on w7 or linux

Which is a version of GIMP that has been tweaked to give a user interface more like Photoshop...

I haven't used it myself so can't comment on the claims.
