Of course, it needs to be Open source, that's the catch.

Does it really?

Yeah, to get included, probably*. But if I was going to release Photoshop for Linux, damned if I would release the source. (See also proprietary nature of CMYK standard noted above.) There are applications that make sense to market and sell closed source - usually ones built around selling shrinkwrapped boxes. The OP is just asking for a dirt simple devkit that lets him squeeze out linux binaries that can be installed without editing sources.list. You know, like that double-clicky, drag-n-droppy thing that Apple does.

*for reals? Is my understanding of how distros and synaptic/etc work flawed? Feel free to correct me.

Our OS who art in CPU, UNIX be thy name. Thy programs run, thy syscalls done, In kernel as it is in user!

Working...
