Photoshop and Dreamweaver (afaik) both install on the latest CrossOver
I keep Windows (very very reluctantly) for a couple of reasons. 
1) I can copy an audio cd, disk to disk, in about 3 minutes on Windows.
On Linux it takes ages.
2) The few games that I can't get working on Linux/Cedega.

The simple answer is, of course you can do without Windows, the question
is, can you be bothered/afford the time to find a new way of doing
things using Linux alone?

Remember, there was a time when none of us had computers. No really, I
remember, ... I think, or, maybe that was just a dream I had.
