Adobe's popular Photoshop software landed on Linux sort of today with a streaming version that will be available to Chromebook users running Chrome OS.

Adobe and Google have worked together to bring a streaming Photoshop version to Chromebooks for education customers. This isn't free to everyone though but for now the rollout is limited to education customers with already paid Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions. Additionally, for now you need to be US-based.

This streaming version of Photoshop is said to be the full-blown version albeit virtualized in your browser. The file storage capabilities of Photoshop on Chromebooks is handled by Google Drive. At this time only Photoshop is available to Chromebook users and not any of other Adobe's creation products.

More details via Google's Chrome blog and the Adobe Education Exchange. At this time there's no communication whether Adobe intends to offer support of the web-based version of Photoshop to those running conventional Linux distributions with the Chrome web-browser.
