I agree that application support is one of the big issues, most users
have issues with games though.  The list of applications was interesting.

Photoshop CS2 - $590 USD
Dreamweaver - $380 USD
Fireworks - $297 USD

This is all very specialised and rather expensive software, they would
probably only be used by a professional web designer.  Why somebody who
did that work professionally and who's income depended on specific tools
would even consider switching to an operating system that wasn't
supported by them seems very strange to me.
