Hi guys, (its my first post :D )

I have been programing for a couple of years now, and I wanna try this Red Hat on my machine. I instaled it once on a computer while in college and played on it a bit. My question is(I'm sure this as been asked many times before) will I be able to instal softwares such as Photoshop, Flash MX, Microsoft Word or even my printer drivers ?

Thankx.

There's one or two hundred thousand apps there that'll work with Linux :)

Linux is not Windows. Windows applications don't install in Linux, just as Linux applications will not run in Windows. There are things such as WINE which will allow you to run Windows applications under Linux, but why would you want to?

Linux does not natively support the running of Windows applications, or make use of Windows drivers. There are plenty of equivalent & better applications out to do the same job in Linux already :)
