You can use Wine to install windows programs in Linux. However, some programs might not work, but some might.
Open a terminal, and type these lines:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install wine1.5


also playonlinux is helpful

Code: Select all

wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Code: Select all

sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_precise.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install playonlinux


The Sims 3 works well in Wine.

World of Warcraft works well in Wine.

Not sure if Adobe Mastercollection works, but I think CS2 works.
You can also use GIMP, the version 2.8 is a great alternative to photoshop.
GIMP 2.6 comes with LM 13, LM 14+ have GIMP 2.8
You can install GIMP 2.8 in LM 13 with this http://www.webupd8.org/2013/02/gimp-284 ... buntu.html
