  1. Doesn't matter what anyone here "believes" - why should Serif gamble on wishful thinking and Linux user "I'm sure..."s?
  2. Because Serif have neither the time nor the resources to port the current version to a new language?
  3. "Clarity"? Which bit of Mark's comment adds anything that wasn't already crystal clear months and months ago? This is the problem (and no, criticising your behaviour is not ad hominem) - you have flatly refused to take on board Serif's long-standing, unambiguous, and unchanged position: instead you've continued to stir the pot despite the answer to your question having been there for all to see since not long after the thread started. It's very hard to identify a difference between your constant hair-splitting, provocative, fact-denying refusal to accept the blindingly obvious reality of the situation and good old-fashioned trolling. For the avoidance of any doubt then: until Serif tells you otherwise, you aren't getting a Linux version.
  4. It's not Serif's job to facilitate your dislike of your current OS.
  5. If you can't easily and securely integrate with the Cloud from a Windows or MacOS platform, you're doing it wrong. You don't need Linux for that.
  6. "Sneering Linux zealots," as I said. What would be stupid would be for Serif to throw limited resources into an unknown market, when there's still plenty of work to do on the versions of the software which exist for the two main OS platforms, and which are already paying their way.
  7. They are not "ignoring demand" - you simply haven't proven that there is sufficient demand. The noise on here (the same relatively few people making most of it) proves nothing, nor do the odd anecdotal "my company of [X] people would use a Linux version..." posts And the sneering comes from Linux zealots like yourself, not from Serif. You might want to re-read what you wrote before accusing anyone else of "sneering".
  8. A complete irrelevant analogy. Linux has had more than enough time by now to have proven itself as The Next Big Thing. Unlike the internet and smartphones, it has singularly, self-evidently failed to do so. QED.
  9. AfterShot Pro is dead - the very definition of abandonware. Tells the story, doesn't it..?
  10. More irrelevant speculation based on nothing more than "I think...". "I want..." All this noise about "the Linux market" - where is it? It'd make more sense for Serif to produce a Chromebook Affinity product, based on actual - and prospective - market share! (And yes, I know what OS Chrome is based on...) This article says all we need to know - maybe when this changes. Serif's opinion will:
  11. Haven't you got that back-to-front? Linux zealots interminably banging on about what they want (and making up fairy stories about the viability of it), despite it being clear that it ain't happening, is far closer to harassment than anything written on here pushing back "Linux users that love Affinity products" need to make a decision: which is more important to them? Their love of Affinity? Or their OS religious fundamentalism?
  12. Here we go again - this completely unquantified, unquantifiable "a lot". No smart business makes investment commitments on the basis of such speculative, uninformed, questionable market estimates. Sarcasm or not, good grief. What possible logic is there to such a ridiculous speculation? Seriously - what does MS gain by doing something like that? Has your tinfoil hat fallen off? Linux zealots aren't "problem solvers" in my experience - just a bunch of selfish, disruptive, conspiracy theorist malcontents who are never happy, and who think the world owes them something.
  13. You mean, like they currently do with Windows and Mac? And before you changed it, your post also said "If anyone wants anything else then too bad." Funny how that's not OK when they say it about Linux, eh?
  14. By doing this your pandering to the exact behaviour some of us reacted to in the fist place, Callum - it'll just happen again if you remove the evidence. I also resent the inference that there was more than one "out of order" contributor to the thread - the troll got exactly what he deserved, and if you were so bothered about it you should have come in sooner, rather than reactively blaming the rest of us for how the thread developed. And he was wrong. You know what? Thanks to you, I'm done with this forum, Callum - few things wind me up more than forum moderators who allow trolls free-reign and then blame other people for how a thread turns out.
  15. Indeed. Tediously self-important, isn't it? As is this self-absorbed paranoia. (I'm an information- and privacy-law professional in the UK - I understand this stuff - and this nonsense is seriously over the top).
  16. You've answered your own question: are you seriously expecting to be as familiar and productive with Photo in a few hours as you are with PhotoShop after 25 years? Many of us have made the move with no problem whatsoever. It's just a matter of doing it and accepting that there's an unavoidable learning curve associated with getting to grips with a new programme.
  17. Agreed, jmac - the arbitrary application of gimmicky filters is no substitute for quality or ability; nor does it make an otherwise banal image somehow "worthwhile". A pet peeve of mine, too.
  18. Were you given any impression by Serif that this was even being considered?
  19. Serif staff have already made several statements about the likelihood of a Linux port in this thread.
