Although I have Ubuntu MATE installed, now and then I stumble upon an interesting Windows program that I would like to use, such as Photoshop CS2 or Reshade. I discovered that there are (as to my knowlegde) three different ways to run Windows programs on Linux:

Among those possibilities, CrossOver Linux is my favorite. Why? Because it supports the widest range of high-quality software such as Photoshop, ZBrush and others. Plus,(Codeweavers are really friendly. They even offer a fully functional 14-day trial version of CrossOver Linux. After that, CrossOver Linux is available from € 41.30 upwards, where 1 year of email support & upgrades is included. This is really not much, compared to the impressive list of programs CrossOver Linux supports.
