Please let us know on what system or systems you would use DJ2. As you all know, DJ2 is coming and it will at first be a Win version and a Mac version will follow immediately. We would like to know what kind of revenue we can expect for each system. Who knows, perhaps enough people want a Linux version that it becomes a viable option
This might also show how big the Mac users part of our community really is

So please vote and post your opinion if you like.

Edit: hmm, I thought I could create a poll where you can select multiple options ...
If you have several options you like to choose, please pick the most important one and post the other option(s).

I'd like to cast my vote for a native-code Windows version. Java is great for portability, but not so great for performance.

Thanks,

Morgan

I voted Linux as we'll be moving all 100+ of our machines to Linux as soon as I can (just have to wait for other vendors to make the leap from Windows to Linux as they are now promising.)

I'm the only one running Dundjinni and that's for personal use at that but I really don't want to A) Have to run Windows just for Dundjinni or B) Give up Dundjinni...again (Java6).

I'll vote for Linux. I really want to switch over permanently, but some programs keep me in Windows. One less would be nice.

I would love to see you make a truly Java-based application (like PCGen) so the OS doesn't matter. I am a Mac and Linux user primarily and have very little use for Windows and I hate being forced to pay for it with any computer I buy and find it even more painful to be forced to use it only because so many software applications are written for one OS only.

It's especially painful when several of these that I use are very much java-dependent/based. It would be great if these things (especially these kinds) were more universal and open to all OS's that have Java.

Anyhow, I voted for Mac (I don't have the money for a Vista-capable PC (that's ridiculous how much RAM and CPU speed that OS needs) or a Mac with a speedy Intel dual-core CPU) simply because I had to vote for one (I would have split my choice between Linux and Mac if possible) since there's already a large number of people for Windows and let's face it - next to no one will make an application and ignore the Windows crowd.

Sorry to revive such an old thread, but I would purchase this for Linux, if there was a version available. I will be purchasing this (hopefully) for my birthday, but it would be the windows one. If you could, would it be possible to have it ported or written for Linux?

I have read a thread that you can "port" the installed version from a windows machine onto a linux machine.

Here's a bump for an old thread :)

I've just purchased DJ and am happily frustrating myself trying to make it do what I want. I have the Windoze version because I have to use that O/S. However, my choice of O/S is linux (Ubuntu for desktop) and I would use DJ on that O/S if I could.

It's a little frustrating that a java app isn't truly portable - hopefully this can be resolved.

And another bump. No Windows or MacOs in this household. Given that it's written in Java, a plain Jar should really be an option ;-)

I heard a lot of good things about this software. I would
have really like to use the demo but it does not work
with Linux (Ubuntu).

I tried with wine, no success. I looked at the forum.
Installed the demo on Windows, transfered it on my box.
The application starts but it generates an exception when
I did File > New.

Let me know if it becomes supported.
