Okay, let me begin by saying that I love the Ubuntu experience. It's so amazing.
On the other hand, I am a graphic design professional and animation enthusiast.
PROBLEM! I cant install my favorite programs on Ubuntu, except for creating a virtual machine, the install either MAC OS-X or Windows. I want to ditch these commercial software completely, so please for the benefit of most Graphic Designers and Animation Crazies like myself, and again I plead with you, help us out with a good solution on how to go about it, or maybe even develop a translation tool that helps these programs run seamless in the Ubuntu environment.
Thanks in advance.
