Adobe Photoshop has taken an early lead as the “most wanted” Windows/MacOS-only application among Linux users, according to an online poll currently in progress on Novell’s CoolSolutions community website. Autocad and Macromedia Dreamweaver are running second and third in the voting, Novell said on Wednesday.
Novell has been polling the public for the last month to find out what Windows-only applications, if ported to Linux, would increase the likelihood that people would switch to Linux. CoolSolutions site editor Scott Morris reported on Wednesday that more than 10,000 votes have been counted since the first week of January.
The top 10 applications (after 31 days of voting) are as follows:
5. Macromedia Studio
10. Lotus Notes
