  1. Well, it's good intel for you too Me, as potential customer, I'm at least curious how you take the decision to not support Linux. As professional software developer too.
  2. First of all, nobody says to do as the poll results. Secondly, aren't you curious? Thirdly, what is the fate of dictatorship? Just kidding... Sorry to be quoted and answer a post that offended you. My apologies.
  3. Consider me voting for porting, but I won't make yet another account on some site just for voting this. Probably almost everybody in this post here would vote for it. So? A more valuable poll would be if everybody having a paid license would vote (pro or contra or don't care...).
  4. I don't know a company, even little, willing to potentially expose its work on the Internet before it's ready for publishing. Me, as hobbyist, I don't even want to be potentially metered, for example. That happens probably with CC products anyway, but it's still possible to avoid it. Where are the good old apps that simply run to to their job? This is a good reason to use Linux, because it's open source and can be reviewed, not because it's free.
  5. Sorry, man, I think the developers are not the ones to blame. They would gladly implement. This is a business decision made by the managers of the company.
  6. Yeah, me too. Linux was free then, but the media pretty expensive for me, in Romania. Lately people are throwing Windows in my face too. I wonder, what your Linux users complain about...
  7. Is that a microwave oven? LOL. Naah, it always worked like that, by copying an existing installation, but that means having a Windows machine working for installing and upgrading. It's a PITA!
  8. Why not crowdfounding the Wine project directly to have several apps supported, like Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Affinity?
  9. I think a more successful crowdfunding would be for implementing the needed features in an open source project, like Gimp/RawTherapee/DarkTable/Hugin, even as a plugin or a bunch of plugins.
  10. Actually, I don't care anymore as I have found the right tools for me on Linux.
  11. Hi, I have asked for a Linux version myself and it has been explained in detail why Affinity won't do it. In the meanwhile, I was rewarded by RawTherapee team and contributors with support for my camera and suddenly I have an ACR alternative! My lack of education made me say RT is not good enough, but I didn't know it needed actually my support in form of some profiling raw files. I am sorry to say, but it's too late for me to join. However, I wish you all 'Good luck!'! Best Regards, Mike
  12. Again no. I did not explain anything to anyone from Serif. Only to some posters not from Serif. That being said, I ask to any moderator here to erase my posts and delete my account, as I won't bother anyone anymore. Was nice to meet some of you. Thank you! Good bye!
  13. No, I have asked for a Linux version from Serif, they responded, I have tried to clarify to some that Linux is not as they think. On the other hand, people coming against a Linux version that are not Serif's employees were also uninvited to answer, so they come into this category. Like it or not. I could ask also what have you actually done for the benefit of Serif and Affinity users in these posts? Do you think you are helping them with those posts? How?
  14. I see people here coming bluntly and saying "Serif will do that, Serif won't do other". Well, I know what Serif states, but I don't understand why serif allows them to speach for itself, as they are no employees and not empowered to carry Serif's interests. Or are they? I see also people twisting other people statements. I have not even relied on Wine or Darling to run Windows/Mac applications, neither stated Linux will run Windows/Mac software. I am stating it is possible to have reliable Linux apps in any fields, if you like, I have asked for Linux support to several companies for some of their products, I have explained facts and why it is possible. My bad. There are people here that simply troll Linux users or adopters with things that are their opinions regarding Linux and what will happen to it and to companies producing commercial software for it. I am sorry, I would not even provide a response to those, but, really, I can't avoid that when some statements are so illogical. I try to be as delicate as possible. Please forgive me.
  15. Ha ha! Exactly the same board, same end. But now it is illegal. Also virtualizing under other OS than OS X.
