  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Not sure why you take that stance. I really wish/desire that they would. It even seems like Microsoft itself is moving toward open source. But, even though this is what I desire, alas, I gave up hope of it ever happening a few years ago and decided to spend any more of my money elsewhere.

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Realizing that this thread is in its 8th year now, I have little hope in seeing anything from Logos on this. While I was a paying customer before, I've given up on ever seeing something for the Linux users. For those of you that are willing to help write a Logos for Linux as has been suggested here, I would point you over to http://xiphos.org/ and suggest

    [quote user="Keep Smiling 4 Jesus :)"] [quote user="alabama24"] [quote user="sjm"]Just wondering...[/quote] I really don't understand your car radio analogy. Here is what I am wondering… You are suggesting that Logos make their software non-os specific. Can you name any major software that is such? [I am seriously interested… not just rhetorical].[

    Or some chose to use something like Qt that proclaims: "Qt allows you to write advanced applications and UIs once, and deploy them across desktop and embedded operating systems without rewriting the source code saving time and development cost." It takes advantage of offloading/outsourcing the compatibility problems and lets you concentrate on what

    [quote user="Kevin Byford"] [quote user="Ulisses Souza"] Let us make a clear point, if one has to buy a new MS-Windows license in oder to run VMware or Virtualbox to play Logos this is not a solution. I have no interest in paying for an O.S. license when I have a free good opensource software available. I wish I could be using Logos right now, but I

    The Spanish post says basically (for Ubuntu 11.10): 1a. Install Wine 1b. Install Logos4 from following the PC installation here: http://wiki.logos.com/Getting_Started_with_Logos#Installation_.2b_Indexing or 2. Install WinXP SP3 or better in a VirtualBox VM and then install as if you are in Windows (really because you are). My thoughts: A. Neither is

    [quote user="Aaron Blumer"] The differences are just really not that numerous.... Maybe another/better question is: how hard would it be to run Android on my PC? [/quote] Maybe another/better question is: how hard would it be for Logos to write a native Linux version if they already have an Android app?

    I don't know which will be harder: trying to get Logos to put out a native Linux version or trying to get the publishers to give permissions to The Sword Project. I think I'll be putting my effort into the second option for now.

    Well, after reading through much (not all) of the thread that won't die (I wonder what that says about the viability of a Linux version?), I guess I can comment on a couple of things: 1. I started out with Logos (even beta versions) back in the mid-90s. 2. I haven't used them in years -- using mostly eSword (in WINE) and/or Xiphos. 3. Someone raised
