Windows or Linux?


#1

It’s been awhile since I’ve used Synfig but want to get back into it. I have a dual boot system, Windows 10 (for work) and Magia Linux. Does anyone recommend using Synfig on one or the other, performance wise? Thanks


#2

If you have dual boot you can figure it out for yourself. I mean, I’ve been using Linux for more than a decade I don’t know how Synfig works in Windows. :roll_eyes: Just test it and choose. :slightly_smiling_face:


#3

I would recommend Linux without hesitation.
It has better integration (made for Linux, based on Linux libs) and a faster startup.

Another possibility is to use a Linux version in a VirtualBox under Win10

Anyway, as Synfig is available in both platforms, why not to use it in both? :stuck_out_tongue:
(Double cost of license sadly… Ah, almost forgot, it’s free :wink: )
Just place your projects in a reachable place (mount + symlink under Linux)

That wasn’t helpful or civil. Why bother answering?


#5

Thanks Bob. That was helpful. Unlike some people, I don’t have hours and hours of free time to play on the computer.


#6

You’re right, Linux then.


#7

Thanks! I appreciate that.
