Re: Has anyone commenting actually tried it?
"Have you tried Linux with WINE"
Yes, with no great deal of success. Even if I manage to get Adobe InDesign running (the subscription version works apparently) I won't be able to create PDF files to hand off to be printed.
"I've also looked at Win2.x, Win286, Win3.0 (all rubbish, Win3.1 was first workable version)."
Not true. Pagemaker ran fine on Windows 286. Indeed, it was the reason I ran Win286.
"Win10 is pointless garbage"
On that we are in agreement...
