Final Draft on Linux
Well I just wanted to ask if anyone has tried using Final Draft on Linux? That's the only program I use on my computer anyway. Well I want to switch to Linux, but I am afraid that the Windows Final Draft program won't work, when I switch.... Which Linux kernal should I get started on? I have no experience and not a genius with OS systems. I have a dell windows laptop and I don't want to mess up anything.

Well, I've never used Final Draft but as shown on the website http://www.finaldraft.com/downloads/demos.html it's not made for Linux so I don't know if it will work correctly, why don't you make a partition, one for windows and another for Linux?

Thread moved from *nix Security Discussions to Operating Systems.
If you want to run Windows apps on linux you can use Wine to do this. They do have a reference for Final Draft and how successful/unsucessful they are at running it. Also, you may want to visit Linux Questions to see if someone there has used it.
AFAIK, most of the film industry (based on discussions with my aunt -- an AD) uses Macintosh as their main platform.
