Yes. Pro 7.1.b279, 32 bit. (I haven't tried the 64 bit version yet on Linux, but since I had it on Win7, I couldn't see much of a difference. I'm only the occasional user though.)JonInc wrote:Of course, if we're eventually forced to migrate to the "Cloud" for everything, my attitude may change.
V.10 does just that. There will be a copy of your hard drives "out there" somewhere. This is not a good thing for original content producers!
I am using this logic: Since Microsoft will withdraw support of the various releases at some point, I might as well start putting my money elsewhere now. There are websites already denying Win 10 users access and it's going to get even uglier.

Sure, if you use a Microsoft account, your settings and user info are stored on their servers, same goes for if you use OneDrive, or Dropbox, or what have you. But that doesn't mean there's no such thing as local storage anymore. I keep all my projects on my D: drive, and it is in no way connected to any cloud. And from what I understand, one can still create a local offline account with Windows 10, although I admit I don't think Microsoft makes it glaringly apparent how to do so. You kind of have to look for that feature.
We're not kids. If we install a program and check the box that says there is no expectation of privacy, what then are we to expect? Essentially, the excess space on all our hard drives is being used indiscreetly to monitor each others' data, only to be mined at will --with the proper placement of ones and zeroes-- by whomever.
That is the cloud... and not so much the correspondingly gargantuan server farms that are also key players.
(It's easy to hide stuff on the "cloud.")
There are two choices. We can either deal with it or hang up the phone. -h
