I don't think the Mac's day has gone especially in the graphic and print industry, much of which still considers Macs as compulsory. When I worked in GD studios it simply wasn't an option, you worked on a Mac and that was that.You don't still use Mac computers do you, their day has come and gone, unless your working with super professional custom built stuff, otherwise, P.C.s just do so much more, and while spending less money doing it. So many programs these days aren't even compatable with Macs. Just wondering.
Intriguing....as I do a lot of designs that turn into parts for cars, motorcyles and other types of vehicles
Audodesk and SideFX successfully sell their 3D DCC big hitters on Linux so paid software can be successful on the platform. Linux's small market share is probably the main stumbling block for smaller developers. It's a shame because Rhino3D wold rock on Linux but I can appreciate why it wouldn't be worth the development effort.No one, as far as I know can make Rhino3D work on a Linux based system, McNeel is afraid of losing control of a program that they don't really charge much for, all things considered.
Yeah the rental model is a drag, using free software keeps me out of it.Lots of programs are moving to a pay by the month as you use it system, which I think stinks.
I think performance oriented ARM chips have potential and users could benefit from competition for the X86 architecture, I just hope someone (not apple) will produce similar hardware for more open ended use, I'm dreaming of course.Apple moving to an Arm Based system, well, I have to see how that will work off.
I've heard Pepakura is Win only, Windows ubiquity definitely has its advantages. I'm not up to speed on papercraft software as I managed to unwrap my Dimorphodon with Blender, any other programs out there?I have seen people struggle trying to make paper models so much using Apple products, they eventually go to Windows, as more is compatible.
The combo of being introverted plus self critical means it's hard for me to take compliments but thank you. I don't consider myself a master of Linux, I use user-friendly distros like Ubuntu and Linux Mint and with great software it's now surprisingly easy to use Linux as a creative platform. I'd like to be one of those Linux techno wizards but age is laying waste to my attention span .Your work is most impressive. Your mastery of Linux is great too. You're in the 1% group, that's for sure.
Also intriguing, I'll check out his work.Allen Tam (Goodduck) is one of those whose work is stellar...
