  1. I think the people referred to are the "call it GNU/Linux/Pop!" folks but that seems to be a very loud/ active minority. I think AP and AD are more targeted at creatives with a Mint, Fedora or Pop! Workstation who want to get stuff done. A lot of them use closed-source if they see value in it, for example, Substance, Houdini, ... and I never saw anyone of them complain about the fact that they have to pay for them. A lot of them think Adobe is crazy money expensive but I think that is a reasonable opinion. I also never got the feeling they are all tinkerers, some just buy there System 76 Works
  2. There are more complicated creative tools on Linux then AP, for example, Houdini, Blender, Maya, Unreal Engine 4. Also, there are tools that are similar to AP like Darktable, Gimp, Krita. So if the Coral team wasn't able, that does not mean it always is not possible. It's not that hard to make Apps multi-platform when you architect them well from the start. You then just have one guy sitting there and refitting the parts that "talk to the OS". When the App is well done, most of the parts of your program don't need to be touched for another OS these days. I suspect that most of AP is created
  3. You've just reminded me of something that might be worth looking at - Wine. It's been around for decades and might solve your problem. From the intro on their About page:  Wine (originally an acronym for "Wine Is Not an Emulator") is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, such as Linux, macOS, & BSD. Instead of simulating internal Windows logic like a virtual machine or emulator, Wine translates Windows API calls into POSIX calls on-the-fly, eliminating the performance and memory penalties of ot
  4. Linux +1 I would terminate my Win 8 dualboot system if AP and AD would get a Linux Version. Also I would buy it for up to 200€ per program to help to get the Linux Version off the ground. Maybe Serif can calculate the cost and start a Kickstarter for a Linux Version, so the financial risk is eliminated? As short term solution: With a KVM (kernel virtual machine or hardware passthrough ) you should be able to get AP and AD to work as native Windows Version under Linux. The Adobe Progies allready work with hardware passthrough. But I didn't tried to get AP and AD to wo
  5. Hi, often I have coworkers on my workstation. They like Affinity Photo but can't get stuff done fast because they only know the shortcuts from Photoshop or other coworkers from Krita. Can you guys put a option in Affinity Photo to switch to Photoshops or Kritas shortcuts fast and back, so my coworkers can get stuff done on my machine too? That would help a lot,
