Mhm, a linux version would make me throw Windows completly from my HDD. :) Using Indigo is the only reason at the moment to keep Vista installed.

Ono

I am starting my teaching Job here at Kendall College this fall.

I am going to buy myself another mac mini to run as a render engine.
It will be connected to the internet and thus if you want I can give
U access to it over the net.


I very much would love to see Indigo also for OS X because I work a lot in Blender and Rhino4. Well Using Parallels is fine for modeling, but I doubt rendering because of memory performance.


I am also the new person here at the College to investigate their software
selection. I am actively trying to increase open source more and more because the students here only know 3DMax (urgh ...).


BTW why cannot i change my password in the forum? I always tells me the old password in the database does not match the (i forgot my password button) password i got via the email.

Ok, thanks.
Not sure how useful a remote connection would be tho.

Dunno about the forum thing :)

Ono, if you want to experiment with OS X, it's quite easy to install into a VM, or a separate partition on your box. I can direct you if you need more instructions.

I won't address the legal issues with that, because Apple won't just sell OSX standalone. :roll:

nearly, but if you want "windows" and "linux", you need "Windows 32 + Windows 64" an "Linux"

He meant "about the same amount of Linuxers and Windowsers"

sorry couldent resist. but seriously, from a $ stand point for those who want render farms and are not entirely adapt at using wine, headles linux servers are a lot cheaper then M$ licenses.

that is SO true, 'specially now that MS is selling vista for around 250 bucks for the best version.
I feel that vista should be max 20 bucks, and office around 9-12 dollars. :?
