Is there an improvement in this? I need Autodesk Inventor Professional for my work. We do not work with windows (because of poor security), nor with mac because of the poor quality / price ratio.
Is there a chance that Autodesk products will make Inventor for Linux Ubuntu?
On my pc, Linux runs on HALF the RAM that Win7 does. And I find it easier on my eyes. And more stable....
The current trend is for software to be cross-platform, I can sync Chrome on Linux and windows, run Open Office on both etc.
Come on Autodesk, the freedom to choose is what your customers want.
Indeed. And, Chrome vs. Inventor... not such a good comparison given the orders of magnitude in complexity. In order for Inventor to run under Linux would require much the same process as in vanilla AutoCAD being ported to the Mac. Complex programs are only possible through referencing pre-made low level operations (e.g. .NET framework, WPF), kind of like not making your own nails and screws when building your house. If all those simple bits aren't available, or are implemented differently, its a lot of work to translate everything across.
Why is Autodesk not programming in cross-platform languages? It will take some time before the program is finished. Then the autodesk products are ready for the future. (C++, QT, OpenGL)
