Mac osx or Linux


Anyone know if there is a way to get proe wildfire 4 running on a mac or on
a linux machine and get near native performance.

Would prefer not to dual boot.

I have read a little about Fink for the mac and wonder if it could be used.

Best regards

They used to have a Linux version for RedHat 7 around when Wildfire came out. I tried it out and it seemed pretty good.

I think they have discontinued developing for Linux though.

PTC stopped supporting Linux at WF4.
If you want a native Mac OS-X high end CAD system, contact Siemens, NX5+ has been ported to it.
They also still support a version of Linux, just not sure which one.
