I recently decided to install ubuntu, i formatted my pc and i installed both Ubuntu and Windows. Since it is hard sometimes to get games to work in ubuntu (specially the new ones) i decided to use Windows mostly for games and ubuntu for work applications, such as programming, the adobe suite and whatnot.

Here's my question: Is there anyway i can use Adobe Master Collection within ubuntu without using virtual mode? I've been searching it all over the internet but i get nothing.

Unfortunately it is not possible to install it with wine. it has got "garbage" rating. More info : – Schweinsteiger Aug 17 '12 at 14:14
It's still worth a shot though. The rating dates from six months ago; Wine has been updated numerous times since then (I count 12!). Also, the first comment in the AppDB entry you linked to points to a possible workaround. – SirCharlo Aug 17 '12 at 14:25

Try installing the suite with Wine.

According an entry from the WineHQ, a 'working installer for the entire CS5 suite or individual products may be created by using the AppDeploy Repackager on a supported platform. The resulting MSI package installs silently and works almost perfectly.'

These claims date from last year, however!
The installation may work without a hitch with the latest version of Wine; or it may not work at all. The best way to find out is to try it yourself.
