The only way you MIGHT possibly run Inventor under linux
is with really fast hardware and VMWare running a Windows
based virtual machine, but it would probably run really
slow and with no graphics acceleration. However, there
are several higher end cad packages that can run native
under linux or other unix based OS's. Two that come to
mind are Unigraphics and Pro/Engineer.

IV= Windows OP

end of choices for "OP"

not even ACAD on anything but windows

this was forced by corporate IT departments back in mid 90"s i think

I believe you can find somewhere how to get Acad 14 installed on Linux,
I've never had any luck with Inv though.

Last I looked PTC had announced plans to discontinue Linux support.
They also seem to be dropping supported Unix platforms. :-|

I tried to get ACAD v12 to run on OS-2warp. No luck even with that.

We used to have acad v13 running on Solaris. That was
the last unix version. Don't think they ever did a os2
version. Didn't they try a Mac version at one time though?

there was a Version of 12 that was native for unix, i remember runing it on a "SGI" system. Should work on Linux fine i would think. v12 I think was the last for the Mac also.
