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

I run modo primarily on Mac but since it will have unlimited render nodes and now support for linux, it really does make this an incredible deal for a small studio with an array of cheaper linux nodes. Yay, f'in yay!

Fair question...

I use Photoshop CS3 in VirtualBox. Some things simply don't exist for Linux yet... GIMP isn't even in the same playing field. Fortunately, there is VirtualBox which mostly works okay, except - by an account of one highly-skilled PS user - for the graphic tablet (like Intuos)... the pressure sensitivity is off.
