I was wondering if Adobe released any Photoshop versions for Linux? Because I looked everywhere in Adobe's site but I could not find any information.

There are huge amounts of people out there just waiting to forget windows for good, its just not a professional platform, it lags, it goes slow, gets stuck, freezes with programs, and macosx is just too expensive.
Now with Linux, you have a stable and affordable OS, therefore people can just spend on what they need.. which is the software, not an OS which should be free. So many people are happy with Linux as a platform, the only problem is that software from mainly adobe and sony is unavailable on it, there is simply no alternative to photoshop, flash or after effects. Its a must!
You guys might assume that the people using linux is far less, thats only because linux doesn't run by marketing, but word of mouth, more and more people move to the platform, its only the professionals waiting around for a linux photoshop or after effects!
Face it, photoshop isn't running the best it can on windows, it would probably run far better on something like ubuntu linux. Ubuntustudio is a developer's OS.

IMO, the "market share of linux users willing to pay for a version of Photoshop" is the wrong metric to use when making this judgement. Ask, instead, how many Windows/Mac users would migrate to (and pay for) a Linux-based Photoshop. I suspect the numbers would be big enough.

Ok guys, it's enough. Money it's the thing isn't it? How much cost for YOU to develop photoshop for Linux. Put a price, we can make a Donation pool with the goal you want/need.

Who cares about your fictional market, or the problems will emerge fighting with an OS, If we pay you, you will do it,

We want you to develop Adobe CS7 for linux ( I specially need Flash Pro, Photoshop, and Premiere as main tools)

So, What's the cost? How much do you want? Where I put my money? Tell me now!

A company like Adobe not conforming to your and other Linux-users’ wishes does not mean that they are involved in shady (and probably illegal) practices.
And with the occasional frictions between Macintosh and Adobe it seems even more unlikely to me that they would conspire in such a way.

Not conforming != Denies

What is that supposed to mean exactly?
Is anybody denying that you and others wish to see a Linux version of Photoshop?

As far as i understand they are not malevolently denying you something that exists, they have decided not to invest the resources it would take to create the thing you and others wish for.

"Not conforming" is a nasty confirmation. It does not mean that Adobe denies shady practices, and also does not mean that shady practices are not being done.

I am not an Adobe employee so my using the term does not mean much to begin with (apart from describing what I perceive).
But I would be much surprised if Adobe would not deny shady business practices.

Voicing your suspicion is naturally your right, but I in turn suspect that you have not thought this supposed conspiracy* through thoroughly.

Edit: *) I assume two companies secretly paying a third company to affect a further entity or persons could be called a »conspiracy«.
