i have had a two decade long satisfactory and generally uneventful relationship with microsoft.
win7 was great and i would gladly use it for years to come.
however for the past year or so it became increasingly clear that MS is spawn of the devil.
not to go on about it, after win7 is pushed out of the market i will be going the other way.
i have a couple of macs but i use them for media stuff. osx is a posibillity but i hate working on it.
i really fancy idea of going with linux.
my main apps are 3ds max, zbrush, photoshop, world machine, terragen and none of them work on linux.
3d coat will be an adequate zbrush substitute, 3ds max is dying a slow death and photoshop could be wined i guess.
substance stuff for linux is being developed and i am keeping an eye on other software aswell.
my question is:
- is there anyone using UE on linux, if so what are the drawbacks?
- how mature is vulkan api at the moment? any chance of it competing with dx12?
the microsoft situation really bugs the hell out of me and i do not feel the least bit comfortable depending on their product.
i would really like to hear some thoughts here - whatever they might be.
