Linux Version of app

Two years ago I switched from Xojo to WPF .Net, because my user base was 100% windows. Now I had a customer request a Linux version of my app. :frowning: They offered $300K USD for a Linux version. I wonder at this point if I should consider Xojo again, or look for something like Electron.

If you can readily port to Xojo, use Xojo. The Xojo-built versions of my main apps work as near flawlessly as my coding allows.

Having only used Xojo on Windows I don’t know how it performs on other platforms. My biggest concern is finding something that can handle a visually intense UI in a snappy fashion. That was one of my biggest problems with Xojo on Windows.

Here is a short video to show what I’m talking about.

I use many of those same type of features with success. Of course, I also depend on a number of MBS and Einhugur plugins for specific tasks, but for that level of monetization, Christian’s and Bjorne’s prices for those plugins is easily defensible.

Ok thanks for the input. I’ll have to download the latest Xojo and give it a shot.
