    And the goalpost shifting starts. Right on cue.

    Maya is and it does have Linux support.

    Some of the autodesk products have you doing odd things to your Linux system so they work.
    Another one who doesn't know how to read.

    Wayland and the future of the Linux desktop for the industry is a current talking point among those familiar with the VFX Reference Platform. CY2022 needed to get finalized, but over the next few months further research is going to be taking place about what studios and vendors need and expect from the desktop, and how the industry as a whole can aid in the development of these requirements.

    sophisticles Sonadow Lack of RH support for EPEL packages isn't as big of a deal as you are making it out to be for this sector, particularly for desktop usage. Yes, minimizing packages used is definitely on the cards, but GNOME 3 has had some reasonably significant performance and reliability issues until later on in the EL7 lifecycle. And not disrupting artist workflows is a fairly big thing, my team at BSS had a hell of time transitioning folks from XFCE to Cinnamon, artists develop quite a few personal ways of working.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Even with wasting time to post this, I still don't think you will be convinced, out of stubbornness or some weird constructed world view, but at least it out there for those interested.
    I already addressed this earlier https://www.phoronix.com/forums/foru...59#post1279759

    If it already wasn't clear enough, that comment was in context of me talking about color management which isn't done natively in Linux, its done externally via a capture card (you do realize this thread is about color management, right?)

    It was also further clarified at https://www.phoronix.com/forums/foru...85#post1279585

    Frankly, at this point Wayland looks more like an attempt to sabotage desktop Linux than a genuine attempt to improve things. But 100% of the problem is more with the attitude of the developers than the technology, so a case like this, where a large or high-profile RH client might want Wayland to Actually F**king Work Properly, is the one thing that might cause some of those missing pieces to finally start making some progress.

    You have no idea what you are talking about and it is obvious that you have never actually attempted to use Resolve on Linux or compared it to the experience of running it on a Mac or Windows.
    I've worked 10 years in VFX, with experience in 3D and compositing and also IT, all primarily in Linux. While I haven't used Resolve for production, I worked with a few colorist who did, and some using it on Linux (typically higher budget productions). The fact that you refer to Resolve as an editor, when its primary use is for color grading, just exposes how little you know of this field, just as the rest of your "arguments" are a joke. It really is embarrassing how you ignore the facts people like mroche are bringing, and still think you know one bit about this topic and post here. On top of that there is this gem

    Honestly, the more I read about the custom software that Pixar and Dreamworks use, the more I think that they may not even run on an OS per se, they may be using custom setups where the rendering software runs on bare metal, maybe even coded with extensive assembler, based on the claims of speed.
    I mean, wow. Do you have any clue?

    Are you talking about the recent versions of Davinci which can run on any Linux or the server version which historically came with their custom Linux or servers? Because historically Davinci resolve ran on a custom Linux that they provided (based on Cent/Redhat) in order for software to work correctly. They even advised you to not even connect to the internet as to not update Linux machines, and they were doing things like pinning NVidia drivers.
    I'm talking about it being used on Linux workstations. It's not "custom" or "generic", it's just Linux even with a capture card, so your point is still false. The reason I brought this software up was your comment:
    Studios don't use Linux when they need to do color because Linux is absolutely terrible in this.
