Running Designer & Photo on Linux (via WINE)?

Recommended Posts

Don't worry, this isn't one of these requests for a Linux port (not that I'd complain).

I'm just curious if anyone has tried running the Affinity products through WINE or any other solution on Linux: ideal choice of distro, performance impressions, problems encountered, anything else that would be good to know?

I mainly use Affinity on Mac these days but do have Windows licenses that I'd like to put to proper use - and seeing as the Macbook Pro is not what it used to be I'm seriously considering a Linux based laptop as my next portable, hence the question.

Yes many have tried, none have succeeded.
