I love linux because it's free. At the moment I'm trying out Suse 9.3.
Problem arises when I need programmes to run in Linux. I can't go with out Photoshop, 3ds Max, Sony SoundForge and Dreamweaver. That's why I'm still lingering with Windows.
I'm wondering if there is anyway of running those progs in Linux. I'm not really fond of getting replacement progs because I don't want to go through the whole tedious process of learning them all again, (eg, The Gimp for Photoshop, don't really want the Gimp because, it's not stable and a lot slower for large images).
Thanks for your suggestion. I'm downloading Cross Over office right now and I'm gonna try it out. You've also mentioned WINE. From what i have read in their websites, they almost do the same thing. The thing i want to know is what is the difference between them. For example, is Cross Over Office more stable and easier to use or if WINE is quicker and more flexible. I would like to know your expereiences with both programmes.
Paying for software is not an issue. I'm more concerned about stability, speed and capability.
hey, good luck with linux my friend, imo everyone have to have experience with linux.. it can be useful for later.
The GIMP can easily replace Photoshop.
Thanks guys. I'll give the Gimp another go. The thing is that previously, I didn't really get along with the Gimp, simply because it's not stable and bit slow, but that was ages ago, i would think most of the bugs would be fixed by now.
Okay, Photoshop's temporarily settled, I would like to know if there are replacement programmes for 3ds Max, Terragen, Picasa 2, Sony Sound Forge, Dreamweaver MX 2004 and Flash MX 2004. Those are programmes that I would need.
Thanks again guys.
p.s I wish big companies would start developing some programmes for Linux. I wonder what's stopping them. Praise Alias Maya because they've already made that move.
Sorry for the few double / triple posts.
# Install latest and greatest wine (wine-20050111-1fc3winehq.i686.rpm)
# Install Winetools (http://www.von-thadden.de/Joachim/WineTools/)
# Use Winetools to install the pre-reqs (dcom98, fonts, IE 6)
# Install Terragen (wine msiexec /i tginstall0919.msi)
# cd to the Terragen directory (cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Terragen)
# run Terragen (wine Terragen.exe)
Thank you very much n0obie4life for your hard work. You RULE!!!. I'll get right into it right now. Thanks again!
Just wondering, do you know why major companies don't have a linux version of their software?
Thanks so much!
Linux = GPL'd
GPL'd = open-source too (I think)
So if a program is released under the GPL, all its subprograms (ie gimp, etc) must be open sourced too.
Then why does Alias Maya have Linux support and I still have to pay for it.
