Why switch to Windows 10 or a Mac when you can use Linux

My buddy David Gewirtz recently wrote about the question of whether you should move from Windows 7 to Windows 10 or a Mac. I have another suggestion: Linux. Specifically Linux Mint 17.3, Rosa, with the Cinnamon desktop.
 
linux-mint-17-3.png

Linux Mint 17.3 is a great replacement for Windows 7. In fact, it's a great desktop operating system period.

Yes, I'm serious. I use all the above desktops -- yes I'm a Windows 7 and 10 user as well as a Linux guy -- and for people I think Mint 17.3 makes a great desktop.

I've been using Mint as my main Linux desktop for years now. Unlike some desktops I could name -- cough, Windows 8, cough -- Linux Mint has never had a flop. Every year that goes by, this operating system keeps getting better. The other desktops? Not so much.
Let's take a closer look.at Windows 7 vs. Linux Mint 17.3

UI Differences
 
There's really not much. While it's even easier for a Windows XP user to move to Mint than a Windows 7 user, any Windows user won't have any trouble picking up Linux Mint with Cinnamon. There's a Start Menu and settings are easy to find.

I regard Cinnamon 2.8 as the ultimate Window, Icon, Menu, Pointer (WIMP) interface. Is it ideal for tablets or smartphones? No. Is it perfect for long-time PC users? Yes.

Cinnamon does add some nice features. For example, if you mouse over the Window list, you'll now see a thumbnail for each application. It also has improved performance, system tray status indicators, and music and power applets.

What I like best about Cinnamon is that it doesn't get in the way. There's no learning curve. You may have never used Linux in your life but you can just sit down and start opening directories, running applications, and modify your PC's settings.

One small feature I like a lot, since I always run multiple work-spaces, is that the work-space switcher applet now shows a visual representation of what's running in each work-space.
Don't like Cinnamon? Unlike any version of Windows, Linux Mint comes with many different desktops. These include KDE, MATE and Xfce. Find one you like and enjoy,

Application Selection

It's true that Linux doesn't have as many application choice as Windows does. But, how many applications do you really need in 2016? I do most of my work these days on the cloud with software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. These apps work just as well on Chrome, my favorite Web browser, on Mint as they do on any other desktop.

That said, there are many excellent Linux desktop programs. For example, instead of Microsoft Office I use LibreOffice 5. I don't use it because it's free, although most Linux desktop applications won't cost you a cent, but because it's an excellent office suite in its own right.

I also use Evolution instead of Outlook for e-mail and GIMP instead of Photoshop for my basic graphic editing needs. The bottom line is that are many great Linux programs that you can use in place of Windows appliations.

Are there some Windows programs that you can't live without? Well, you don't have to live without them.
There are two ways to run Windows programs on Linux. One is to use CodeWeaver's CrossOver Linux. This program enables you to run many popular Windows applications on Linux. Supported Windows applications include Microsoft Office (from Office 97 to Office 2010), Quicken, and some versions of Adobe Photoshop.

The application you absolutely must have won't work with CrossOver? Then run it on a virtual machine (VM) program such as Oracle's Virtual-box.

I use both methods and they work well.

Установка и настройка Wine программы для запуска приложений Windows

Wine (WINE Is Not an Emulator)  специальная программа, слой совместимости, для запуска Win32 приложений в UNIX-подобных системах. Проще говоря, эта штука позволяет запускать виндовые проги и игры в вашем уютном Линуксе.

Программа активно развивается, но пока, к сожалению, не все приложения корректно в ней работают (а некоторые не работают вовсе). С играми пока тоже печально – полной поддержки DirectX 10 и 11 нету, только 9 и младше. (поддержка DirectX 10 активно улучшается в последних тестовых сборках). Но тем не менее, и на DirectX 9 очень много игр. В этой статье мы установим и сконфигурируем Wine, а также установим приложение PlayOnLinux, которое очень пригодится для игр. Установка будет зависеть от вашего дистрибутива, но сама настройка программы абсолютно одинакова в подавляющем большинстве дистрибутивов. Существует две ветки Wine – стабильная и тестовая. В большинсве случаев рекомендуется использовать именно тестовую, так как программа активно развивается и улучшается. Пока рассмотрим установку стабильной версии (примеры для командной строки, однако вы можете пользоваться графическими утилитами, типа Ubuntu Software Center или Yast2 в OpenSUSE):

Для Debian/Ubuntu/Mint:

sudo apt-get install wine winetricks

Для OpenSUSE:

sudo zypper ar -r http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine/openSUSE_13.1/Emulators:Wine.repo
sudo zypper in wine

Для Fedora:

sudo yum install wine
cd /tmp
wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks

Обратите внимание. Если у вас 64 битная система, то для корректной работы 32-х битных программ (а игры в большинстве именно такие), необходимо сконфигурировать Wine на 32-х битный префикс. Для этого водим:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg

Откроется окно настроек. Можете оставить всё как есть.



Теперь нам необходимо установить комплект системных библиотек для работы наших виндовых приложений. В меню программ найдите и запустите Winetricks (или из терминала командой winetricks). В первом окне выбираем---Select the default wineprefix--- наживаем ОК. Во втором---install a Windows DLL or component---ОК


Запомните:
Нужно будет отмечать точками, как в списке. Лучше устанавливать не все сразу, а по несколько штук. Я их разделю для удобства. Далеко не уходите при установке, нужно соглашаться с лицензионными соглашениями и прочим. Будут выскакивать окошки с ошибками, жмите ОК. Начнём.

directx9, d3dx9, d3dx9_26, d3dx9_28, d3dx9_31, d3dx9_35, d3dx9_36, d3dx9_42, d3dx9_43, d3dx10, d3dx11_42, d3dx11_43, d3dxof, devenum, dinput8, dirac, directmusic, directplay, dmsynth

dotnet20

dotnet30 (посыпятся ошибки и откроется окно в файловом менеджере и в браузере, скачиваем по второй ссылке и перемещаем в это окно файлового менеджера. Набираем в консоли winetricks и снова выбираем dontnet30. Перед этим нужно проверить Настройку Wine, чтобы стояла версия Windows XP или Vista.


dxdiagn, gecko120, gfw, mfc40, mfc42, msasn1, msxml6, gdiplus , physx, quartz

vb5run, vb6run, vcrun2003, vcrun2005, vcrun2008, vcrun6, vcrun6sp6

wmp10, wsh56vb, wsh57, xact, xact_jun2010, xinput

Установим шрифты. Выбираем Instal a Font и указываем

corefonts , fontfix

Настройка реестра

Открываем Change Settings и отмечаем
1. DirectDrawRender(ddr) -- opengl
2. Multisampling Direct3D -- enabled
3. OffscreenRenderingMode(orm) -- fbo
4. PixelShaderMode(psm) -- enabled
5. Render TargetLockMode(rtlm) -- auto
6. UseGLSL(glsl) -- enabled (default)(Для видеокарт Nvidia рекомендуется оставить disabled. Это может существенно поднять производительность некоторых игр).
7. VertexShaders(vsm) -- hardware
8. VideoMemorySize 1024 (выбирете значение ОЗУ вашей видеокарты)
9. MouseWarpOverride(mwo) -- enabled (force)
Подтверждаем наши изменения – OK.

Вот собственно и всё. Теперь небольшие примечания по установке софта и игр. Во первых, ни в коем случае не устанавливайте дополнительное ПО, которое предлагает программа (всякие директиксы, visual c++ и так далее). Внимательно проверяйте и в случае чего – снимайте галочки. Во-вторых, в конце установки снимайте галочку "Запустить программу".

Теперь что касается тестовой версии. Для Ubuntu/Mint существует специальный репозиторий. Чтобы его подключить и поставить тестовую версию Wine, вводим в терминале:

sudo add-apt-reposytory ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install wine 1.7 winetricks

В некоторых дистрибутивах (например Debian), для установки тестовой версии, её нужно собирать из исходного кода. Но это уже выходит за рамки этой статьи. Или вы можете установить wine-staging, который также является тестовым, но имеет несколько дополнительных возможностей.

How to run Windows programs on Linux with CodeWeavers CrossOver

Want to move to Linux, but there's this one application that's keeping you stuck on Windows? CodeWeaver's CrossOver Linux may be exactly what you need.

Just because there's a Windows application you must use doesn't mean you must run Windows. CodeWeavers CrossOver Linux enables you to run many popular Windows applications on Linux. Supported Windows applications include Microsoft Office (from Office 97 to Office 2010), Intuit Quicken, and some versions of Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop CS. CrossOver also runs games. For example, you can play such popular online games as World of Warcraft and Guild Wars.


Office 2010 running on Linux Mint with CrossOver
Need Microsoft Office on your Linux PC? Thanks to CodeWeavers CrossOver that's not a problem.
Sure, with powerful enough hardware you could run your Windows applications on Linux inside a virtual machine (VM) such as Oracle's VirtualBox. The problem with these is that they don't run well on systems with limited resources. If CrossOver supports the applications you need you won't need to worry with fitting a VM.

CrossOver runs many but not all Windows programs. For example, you can run Visio 2010 on CrossOver Linux. AutoCAD? Not so much.

Will your program run on Linux, or for that matter CrossOver Mac? CrossOver keeps a complete listing of what runs, and what doesn't. You can also try CrossOver with a 15-day free trial to make sure the software you need works well on a Linux system.

CrossOver is based on the open-source project Wine, an implementation of the Windows application programming interface (API) on top of the Unix/Linux operating system family. Wine is a mature project with 20 plus years of work behind it.

Technically, you don't need CrossOver Linux to run Windows applications on Linux. You can do it with Wine alone -- if you know what you're doing. CrossOver gives you automated installation of Windows applications and technical support. In short, CrossOver makes it much easier to install and manage Windows applications on Linux.

CrossOver 15, the latest version, is available as a 15-day free trial. If you like it will cost $59.95. It comes with 12 months of upgrades and technical support. CrossOver is supported on Debian, Fedora, Mint, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and Ubuntu. It should work on any Linux, but these are the officially supported distributions. CrossOver requires almost nothing from your PC except that it be capable of running Linux. Any PC from the last five years will have no trouble running it.

There's also a good free program, PlaysOnLinux, which duplicates some of CrossOver's functionality but doesn't have much support. If you're new to Linux, CrossOver is the best way to go. Since you can try it for free, you'll know before you buy whether it supports your favorite Windows applications.
