As sad as it may be, Rhino does not run under Linux very well. I know there have been several attempts for running it under wine but with little success, but CrossOver, which is the supported payfor wine-alike application, has had some success running Rhino under Linux, but it crashes a lot still.
To be honest, I will never buy Rhino as long as it does not support Linux. It won’t happen since I run 100% on Linux. But I would be willing to pay for it if Rhino could support developers of Crossover or wine to help them solve the issues that is known and may be found in the future…
I therefor hereby ask “how interesting would it be for McNeel developers to help the CrossOver/Wine teams to solve the issues with loading Rhino”? McNeel may still sell their software with the clausule that there are no support for Linux/Crossover issues but it would open up for a new marked. This would be a simple test to see if there actually would be a real marked for a cross platform variant of Rhino in the future (Which I believe there is).
So tell me, McNeel, do you want some new customers?
