    I recently saw a post about this project on GitHub which I believe uses a VM to run Microsoft apps / Adobe and some sort of wizardry to make it look native. You could take a look and see if it would work for you. | 2020-12-29

  • Music producer trying to switch to linux
    I keep a separate windows pc just to run ms office, because my job requires word documents with proper formatting, and none of the linux workarounds work 100%. I spent some time working on WinApps:, but found for me it’s easier to just keep a second pc with windows that I can log into remotely with remmina.

    You can use WinApps, it supports Photoshop.
