After fighting my windrools box after some botched installs, I am fed up with it. Who the heck thought the registry was a good idea?
Conversely, I can’t bring myself to spend twice as much on a PC which has Mac logo slapped on it.
I used my Linux box for years, and if software didn’t install properly, it never hosed the USB subsystem, it never caused file browsing to get slower and slower, and it was cheap.
Why no love for Linux?
Holywood uses it. More and more high end 3d software is available for Linux.
It’s had STABLE RELIABLE SMP and 64 bit support for AGES. No more waiting on Vista to gets act together, or waiting for Apple to finish Leopard. Linux is here NOW. Z3 can scale to 256 cores? Linux can support that many. Gigs of ram? Trivial.
It has a variety of fast, reliable filesystems that are optimized for throughput, which would be a boon for Z3s streaming.
Even 32 bit linux is happy to run 4 gigs with a 3-1 software/hardware split unlike windows.
I know Zbrush uses it’s own homegrown UI library. So why no love? Please make me happy. I’m tired of fighting windows. I don’t want to pay 2X more just for the privilege of running BSD on a computer with a mac logo.
Mac is BSD under the hood. Surely a Linux port can’t be too hard…
