Why haven't you jumped the sinking ship that is windows and moved to a superior free system?
>>644516No, fuck you.
Only someone who doesn't have a job and has too much time on their hands does this shit.Running windows applications on Linux CAN run fine but for the most part you have to deal with all kinds of obscure problems and even if some fixes are swiftly done it all adds up and you spend a fuckton of time getting things to run and even then it is most likely that the program you want to use will crash often or some part of the functionality is simply not working.Whenever you see proud showoff posts like this, it's absolutely guaranteed that the person behind is not someone productive and most likely is jobless.
>>644516Choose future. Choose progressivism. Install CoC(k)+Linux.
>>644519Linux has a strong presence in VFX. I am not at all surprised to see people getting Zbrush working in Linux it could very easily be worth the time to not have to deal with windows and it's growing list of issues.
didnt even realise zbrush worked on linux
>>644516Linux has been converged by the SJWs
>>644528Didn't they threaten to remove their contributions or something?
>>644516Marvelous Designer doesn't currently support Linux.
>>644516I'm a fucking Linux user, posting from Mint, modeling exclusively on GNU/Linux.Konqueror is trash. GTFO with that shit. Don't even mention *buntu spying glitchy junk.Mint is the most stable distro, Manjaro is OK. Konqueror is some aborted German college project. You can't use that longer then a month without fucking with xorg.conf every 5 minutes.
>>644519Think of this for a second...Who would move to a free system to use proprietary applications? It's like when Americans go to Europe to dine in McDonalds.If you're moving to Linux ten use non-proprietary applications.BTW Blender has pretty decent sculpting tools.
>>644520Or get your anus examined by Bill Gates.The software is good, the people who make it (GNU/Linux) are fucking terrible.
>>644523It has performance advantages also. You don't have FORCED UPDATES while you're rendering something for one thing. You can also customize the system to do ONE THING rather then downloading shit load of junk for some Cortana update you never use. I had my PC using 100% memory, checked the processes running and it was shitty Mobile something bullshit Windows application running in the background clogging the system while I'm working. Fuck Micro$oft. They have 4 squares because they couldn't get a swastika.
>>644797>anus examined by Bill Gates (straight person)>or get your anus examined by some trannywell atleast windows isn't gay
>>644800Gay is reserved for everything Apple.
>>644798It's less effort to be a windows power user than a linux userOne hour in regedit and msconfig after your first install and you're set forever
>>644804It also takes less effort to be a DJ then a conductor.
>>644796Think of this for a second...Pixar works mostly with RedHat. Presto works on Linux and it's not just proprietary, it's so fuck-you-proprietary that you can only use it at Pixar.Why would they move to Linux to use proprietary applications? Because Linux roflstomps Windows when dealing with the kind of workload (high number of CPU cores, memory-intensive) they have.
>>644806Yeah but you're delusional if you think you're not a DJ too
>>644516Did noone notice that he's listening to an Eromanga sensei AMV?
>>644525Any sort of high DPI monitor and it's fucked. Fine otherwise.
Linux is a system scaled down from mainframe computers. It's a native server operating system.A Linux system will try to run even if there are problems, Windows will stop like a holy cow on an Indian road and wait for you someone to attend to it.Windows/Mac OS are only really for desktop users. Windows server is the same virus infested OS but with more features ticked in the installer. It's fucking cancer.
>>644836I did but my taskbar is definitely way worse
>>644516because Linux is sinking toohttps://lulz.com/linux-devs-threaten-killswitch-coc-controversy-1252/
>>644798Oh there is lots about Linux that is better for people doing 3d, especially with the recent increase in cpu cores. I am actually quite surprised Pixologic has not made any move to officially support Linux on that platform given it's place as preferred sculpting application.>>644796>BTW Blender has pretty decent sculpting tools.Just stop. Nobody is going to use blender for sculpting when Zbrush is an option. Even if I have to use windows in order to use Zbrush I will do that over using blender for sculpting.
>>644796Bro, I use Linux simply because Windows is awful, I don't give a shit about freedom or any sort of idealism. Linux is simply the most pragmatic option for me. I simply don't have the time or energy to de-spyware Windows 10 after every update, along with constant nagging and restarting of updates. Proprietary software in Linux is fine by me. I already bought plenty of Steam games, as well as the Jetbrains IDE suite.
>>645046thats nice and all but I can't really recall my windows stopping working ever in span of 7 years and counting when I tried linux, it fucking died after a week of simply using it
>>644516so how do you make software that is not supported by linux run under linux? can you make it with any program you want or are there limitations?
>>644516Posting this post from OpenSuse. So sick of MS reinstalling apps on my "P"C that I don't want. I don't play Xbox, I uninstall Xbox app, it comes back a few months later. I also hate the forced updates, the fact that by default, I the only user of the computer, am locked out of certain folders, and that I can't uninstall certain programs like Edge, Cortana, or the Microsoft Store (thinking emoji.meme) So much happier having switched to OpenSuse. I don't miss any of the M$ retardation or bloat ware whatsoever. >>645095It might be a little slower than running it on native hardware/software, but you could setup a Windows or Mac "virtual machine" and run it through that. There's also Wine, a compatibility layer between Windows and Linux, which I suspect would be faster than a vm in most cases. You can also use a VMware on Windows to install a Linux virtual machine to try a few Linux Distributions and find one you really like. For me, that's OpenSuse and MXLinux.
>>645099>"virtual machine" and run it through that.so what would be the point of even having linux installed? when im gonna be spending my day in the virtual machine running software that is not supported by my main OS which is now just running in the background taking resources..????
>>645106It depends on each case, really. If you only use ZBrush or Photoshop (or whatever Windows-exclusive program you need) once or twice a week, it may be beneficial to do all the rest in a native Linux environment.
>>6450951. Run it through a standard virtual machine. This gives you 100% compatibility, but the VM itself requires resources. The VM normally cannot access your GPU so it does not work well with modern games2. Virtual Machine with GPU passthrough. All the benefits of a standard VM, but can also access the GPU. Downside is that you actually have to be good with computers to set this up3. WINE. Instead of running in a VM, you can use this tool to run programs directly through Linux. Works well with your GPU and requires the least resources and setup. Downside is that compatibility is not 100%. There's an online database on programs that work or don't work.>>645106If you can't think of a single reason why a Windows host would be detrimental, maybe computers just aren't for you.
>>645095You use a program called WINE that mskes Windows applications run natively on the system. Some guys reverse-engineered Windows and made a 'compatbility layer'. Sometimes you may even get the windows application to run faster on Linux.I never use VMs for running windows apppications on Linux that's a lazy inefficient way.Also there are many different 'distributions' of Linux designed to do different things. There's ReactOS that is specially made for running old Windows programs, there are distros that focus on power efficiency, IoT and pretty much everything you can think of.
Just do all that shit to run programs meanwhile Windows just werks out of the box.
I used Linux for years while doing 3D. It just made things more difficult to be honest. The software ecosystem for doing art/cg is worse and Linux as a whole isn't robust enough, you're always dealing with issues that you wouldn't face as a Windows user.For art/cg work I think it only makes sense if you don't require a lot of the Windows/Mac only software, or if you work at a larger facility where everything is departmentalized and you're strictly doing Maya/Houdini/Nuke/whatever.
