In opensource alternatives I personally miss focus stacking and exposure stacking (developing raw files and minor editing work is fine for me). I find interface of GIMP still not great (not that it matters, since it doesn't support those named features). I am just a hobbyist toying with photography and while there are some foss solutions, they are complex and of those I managed to run, results were disappointing (I tried focus stacking on coworker's pc and result in affinity photo was quite good). I am not buying any affinity product until native Linux support is implemented or it runs well in wine. I wouldn't mind paying beforehand (crowdfunding/preorder). Since it's only a hobby, I just won't do macro photography (only bought cheap extension tubes, so virtually no money wasted). PS: f*** you serif for misleading about registration not required and after submitting suddenly it's required and unless registered the post is discarded. 😠 I am surprised VM runs so bad on Linux, I run it on my iMac along side all my Adobe apps and it is not even noticeable. VM is a valid way of running apps well, just not one for Linux it seems. Might be a better thing to push for at the moment is improved performance for VM. It is totally legally to run Windows as a VM. Lots of Windows servers and machines running other Windows VM's as well for various reasons. We have some legacy software running in Windows 2000 that is a virtual machine on our server. Completely right move not buying software till it meets your standards and you can run it on what you want to run it on, the other side of it is you are not owed software on Linux. Would be nice for all you Linux users to have it but I think you might have some time to wait on that. Are there any forums that allow you to post without registration? Seems strange to get mad about something that is standard. Not sure what sites you are on that let you post without registration, would be curious to see one and to see how much spam must be on there.
