    [quote user="Mike W"] [quote user="StephenH"]Do you happen to know what thread that was?[/quote] I'm not sure how to post links to forum posts but it is under thread New Prepub Request - Logos for Linux dated October 2009.

    [quote user="Mike W"] I believe that Bob mentioned an account set up to get Logos running under Crossover on another thread. Contributing to that account would seem to be the most productive way for Linux users to demonstrate that supporting their platform of choice is economically feasible .

    [quote user="Kevin Byford"] Thank you StephenH for recognizing and stating that fact. If your choice of platform prevents you from using Logos Bible software, that is your choice. I'm surprised that you are even on this forum since the purpose of it is for Logos customers to help improve Logos, not for non-Logos customers to express why they will never

    Given the complaints I have seen in this thread, it is very likely that Logos' choice of Windows Presentation Foundation for developing Logos software would seem to indicate that WPF was not quite ready for prime time. Plus, with the upcoming release of Windows 8, how much reprogramming is going to be needed to fix Logos to run since new versions of

    Dominick, you are correct. Both versions I run are Windows versions of the programs. I explained it in previous posts. I run them both using CrossOver, which is a commercial version of WINE (mainly so that I can make isolated "bottles" for each program so that if one misbehaves, it won't take down everything). As I previously stated, WordSearch 10 runs

    [quote user="Conquer"] I run Logos on both PC desktop and Mac laptop, no problem on either. PC certainly doesn't crawl. A search might take a little bit of time, but anything else is fine. [/quote] The subject pertains to Linux. It isn't very useful to say that it runs on PC or Mac. That is something that we already know. Please post that type of comment

    It doesn't do much good if I don't own Logos. Any resource available for me to view on that site, I already have in a program that runs in Linux. Beside that, the web interface has the Internet lag built-in as well. Why not do a browser interface to the local resources that could serve as the user interface for the local installed resources and distribute

    Agreed. I now have two software packages which were originally for Windows that run well on my Linux desktop: BibleWorks 9. Unlike Logos, the people at BibleWorks have been actively engaged with the people at Codeweavers to get Bibleworks to run using CrossOver. The only remaining problem is in viewing .chm files. WordSearch 9 (and I would think 10

    You bring up some interesting points, but no thanks on the Apple. They have some nice features and I really like the magnetic power connector that Apple uses, but it just isn't my cup of tea. Have you tried to work with Hebrew right-to-left text with an Apple product? You need to purchase Mellel to do so properly, and even then, it has its problems

    You have not told me anything I did not already know. I use VirtualBox quite extensively. Despite that, I will NOT run Logos in a virtual machine. I have my reasons. HTML 5 runs in Firefox on Linux already with the exception of the H.264 patent-encumbered codec. If one uses the open-source OGV/Theora or VP8/WebM formats for media, then the cost of development

    [quote user="Michel Knisely"] A Linux specific app is simply not necessary... all that is needed is an OS agnostic version that will run on all platforms. A single code base that can run in all environments. http://xiphos.org/ comes to mind in the Bible study environment. Right now, I use Logos on my Andorid, but I hardly ever use my full install because

    Yet another request for Linux. Now that you have a Mac version and an Android version, much of the work for having a viable Linux version has likely been done. Please consider taking the last few steps needed to bring Logos to the Linux platform. The additional market for such a move might be hard to quantify. I certainly have been looking at Logos
