Here we go…
I am seriously committed to changing to Linux after I had to realise MS is going to force you to use a MS account always. For me, this is completely out of question. Since Windows 10 and the ongoing breach of privacy by MS I thought a lot about changing to Linux - and I will go there. Oh, my phone runs on Lineageos without google and Apple is just to expensive - speaking of privacy not much better than MS. (Planning to switch back to a dumb phone). And there is the patriot act - America was another country 20 years ago. In my opinion, Bin Laden was extremely successful with destroying the free western civilization… And Edward Snowden is extremely right. (Read his new biography “Permanent Record”).
It’s horrendous that no one really is realising what’s happening in our time.
Of course, you will think “what’s going on here - this is just a forum of a great notation software”. For me, nowadays seems to be a time where nothing is not political - perhaps you can understand this a little bit. And the use of hard- and software becomes more and more so, as well. (I am german, so please forgive me when I can not express my deep concerns well in English…).
Hopefully, I can use Dorico with Linux, a virtual Windows machine and network switched off. Wine did not run on my first tries, but perhaps I will achieve something later on - I’ll let you know. If not, Dorico has to grow without my solicitousness. Perhaps serious software companies should realise that developing software for Windows or MacOS is going to help questionable leaders constructing a world much worse than George Orwell could imagine.
Please, Steinberg, make a move to Linux - probably Debian would be the most acceptable choice. More than 800 views on this topic - there seem to be quite a lot of people who want to make the switch!
