  1. Yeah, if it keeps improving I might have to get a CC subscription.
  2. I've seen Linux users (other than me) in coffee shops in Sheffield, Manchester, and Madrid. Your local coffee shop(s) is not a significant sample size. (Also, if we're basing numbers off coffee shops, I'm positive we'd over estimate the number of Mac users in the world)
  3. I'd be happy with it working under either Wine or Lutris, that'd be enough for me to buy licenses for all three products. Surely that'd be much less work than a native version.
  4. Just because it's 1% of the desktop market doesn't mean it isn't more of the designers/publishers/artists/etc. There's a much bigger proportion of Windows users that just surf the web and play games on their PC than there is of Linux users. What proportion of people with a PC have Linux is pretty meaningless to this discussion. What matters is the proportion of Affiniy's target demographics that use Linux.
  5. Certainly a lot less, not sure it's a "tiny part of 1%", but yeah it's probably around 1%-ish. Still, there's several hundred commercial programs that are profitable on the OS. No reason why the Affinity suite couldn't be among those. Developing just for Linux? Yeah, that's dumb. Porting to Linux and doing what's needed to gt it working? It works for a lot of the companies that have tried it.
  6. I've got a bunch of games that are't on that list, so it's definitely not even close to comprehensive.
  7. Okay, so Serif aren't keen on giving us a dedicated Linux version, but lets see if we can get it Wine compatible. If you go here; https://appdb.winehq.org/ and create a login, then you can vote on what apps you want Wine fixed to work with. Once you're logged in, search for Affinity and if you go into either of those there should be a 'vote' button. You have three votes, and you can give multiple votes to the same app if you want. The more votes we can give Affinity, the more likely it is to get fixed for Wine.

  9. Yep, it costs over seven times what Affinity Publisher does, but I'm seriously considering it too.
  10. How does VivaDesigner compare to Affinity & InDesign? If it's closer to them than Scribus, I'll have to give it a whirl.
  11. Add me to the list of people who don't use Windows/Mac, but who would buy if there was a native Linux version. (Definitely Publisher and Designer, but probably Photo too.) I came here after being sold on how much better Affinity is than Scribus, but then I found out that I can't switch. If you ever decide to make it, I'd be happy to be a beta tester for the Linux version.
