Just wondering, no trolling here.
In some places dedicated texture artists have a second box, or a second boot.
That said, many places run:
Mudbox, Mari, BodyPaint, Gimp, ZBrush under wine (it can run absolutely perfect) and PS-CS5 on a virtual box (can be chuggy but semi-reliable) perfectly fine.
There are batches of work that are still way faster to chain up done in Photoshop, but there are many stages (IE: first two thirds of creature texturing) that are actually a lot, and I mean A LOT, easier on mudbox and mari or a combination of the two, and both were available on linux before they were on windows
