Is the interface that different between Linux and Windows? I feel that
Windows users are more at a disadvantage, because the file dialog boxes
aren't your average Windows Explorer, but rather some arcane java-based
file selection/open thingie. I would focus on the main interfaces for
Windows and maybe Mac, as an alternative to Photoshop. (Personal
preference, as I use both versions and am teaching my kids the same.)

When I worked at a company where developers spent most of their time in
Linux, they reviewed our Word documents in a Windows XP VM using MS Office.
