Linux and Software for Windows


Following on from the Digital Darkroom Series we will take a look at dispelling some concerns that people have when using Linux as the preferred operating system rather than Windows. We will try a number of Windows based programs to see how they do or dont work.

By way of introduction the following video clip is of my Linux based PC and operating system running Windows 10 in Virtual Box and using Photoscape X

We will walk through the installation of these programs in further articles. For now watch me mess about with a 35mm film image, which will be shown at the conclusion of this series in a finished form. To see things clearly view the video in full-screen mode.

Every thing you see is happening in real time, and any jitteryness is due to running the screen recording software which impacts on the overall performance. I will post some recommended computer specs so you can see how well your system stacks up.
