I am always on the lookout for more fun toys (software) to play with. Recently I’ve been seeing work done with Apophysis and I knew I had to add it to my toy chest (grin). However I always have a problem. I am a linux gurl and even though I have an old windows xp computer (read slow and little memory) I rarely use it except for some old fractal generating programs I still like to play with. I wasn’t sure if I could get Apophysis to work on the old box but decided to try anyway. So I began downloading it on my linux computer.
Now there is a program for linux called Crossover that allows us to run windows programs but not all of them work quite like they should. Crossover is improving considerably and I do use it to run Paint Shop Pro v7 for some of my work. If I had Photoshop I could also run that under Crossover but I didn’t even think that Apophysis would.
So as I started downloading I was given the option of installing Apophysis under Crossover. Now just because it gives the option is no guarantee the program will run correctly but I thought why not give it a try so I did …. and guess what! IT WORKS!!! I was so pleased I just had to tell everyone that it did!
this image is my first of a likely many (grin) … hope you enjoy it as much as I had in designing it (big smile)
