Linux, any way TC will ever run on it?

Is there any possibility that TC might start working on a Linux based cad, even just the 2d, in the near future?  I really hate MS.

What problems do you have with MS10?

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

I think it extremely unlikely.  The Mac version of TurboCAD is an entirely different experience, adapted from another CAD application altogether.

Hey Don,
I have not purchased 10 yet.  The negative reviews in general about 10 are worse than was for 8 or Vista.  I don't like the direction MS has taken, forced ads, privacy intrusion, forced updates, the new desktop, intentional bricking of old software and hardware, etc..  Making unnecessary changes just because a bunch of nerds at MS want to, not because it's needed, is foolish and a huge waste of time.  I've been saying for years that I'd pay MS 50. a year just to have them keep W7 updated.  Maybe go back in and make it faster, etc., but keep 7.  I don't need the operating systems wheel to be reinvented every few years.

But don't get me started.  I have to do something with the Intel 7700 chip I'm running on my new desktop, since I can't get any security or hardware updates from anyone, including MS, which is making 7 and my hardware increasingly unstable.  Or just stay with 7 on my older desktop and take it off line in 2020.

Nice to see you still up and running, and I agree Don, there isn't enough time left.  :'(

Hey Jeff,
That's what I figured.  I was just hoping someone might know if TC would run on it.  I love TC, so probably just some wishful thinking on my part. Thanks.   Anyone know if the TC 2d package would run on anything Linux?
