  • You're right in one important aspect, the OS should run your software and connect well to all the hardware. I use Linux mostly (MATE environment), have used KDE, Cinnamon desktops also. I use ...
  • This would depend on the actual colour range in the image and the profile of the camera (which again, might not be precisely sRGB or any other colour space). It makes sense to keep the original as ...
  • I think there is some confusion about an image being in a certain profile and the rendering of that image on a device. Any device, even it is a wide gamut, should have a dedicated profile, so that ...
  • The K and non K are within 5% of each other, and in absolute terms, pretty fast. Heat is never good, and the non-K dissipates much less of it. So easier to cool. So that's where I would invest, the ...
  • Virtualbox will run fine with a linux host. From what I read in the forums (VB ones, that is), Windows is not as stable as a host, but performance wise, there is little to choose. I have not tried ...
  • There is nothing wrong with CentOS, but in the Virtualbox forums, you regularly see the comment that Debian is the host target for the developers.  in any case, if you know a distro well and it is ...
  • I prefer the wipe disk as well. Not only does it prevent pollution propagation, it also allows you to just put back what you're using now, rather than what you used and forgot as well. I use areca ...
  • if you mail the author, I'm sure he'll recover the key, there's even a procedure for it. :) My experience with VB under windows is too long ago to be still relevant I think. But at the time I was ...
  • It's not a need, it was set as a pre-condition.... If already running Windows, you would not need to install it to support a scanner. And if you need Windows to scan, it would make no sense to ...
  • Not fully, it doesn't support Linux.
  • True, but sane doesn't support the same scanner either. According to Vuescan, it needs to have the Canon driver installed and it will use that. So a Windows 10 VB client will work well, I do that ...
  • If you are installing Debian stable, make sure you include the backports (https://backports.debian.org/Instructions/) and pick up a new kernel and a newer desktop environment. By default the ...
  • For scanning I would suggest Vuescan. It works on Linux and Windows, has good support for loads of scanners and is extremely capable and is easy to install and use.....
  • It depends what you label as a major issue. Windows 7 to Windows 10 was on the surface smooth sailing. However the result is not stable when done as a VB client and painfully slow when done on ...
  • AFAIK the Virtualbox developers use Debian stable as their reference host. I run Windows 10 Pro on Virtualbox on Debian Buster and it is totally stable. In the past there have been a couple of ...
  • I'm not a lawyer, so I can't say for sure. But AFAIK in Germany you can. However, you must have legal access to the original media. So if you have the iso in question, obtained it legally, you can ...
  • The reason to move to subscriptions is that it generates more revenue. Apple recently advised developer to move away from one-time purchases, and move to subscriptions because it created 'more ...

  • Display accuracy is worth quite a bit. But being able to calibrate the display would outweigh a wider gamut. Simply because a known limitation is easier to work with than an unknown capability Gami ...
  • Within the EU, you can purchase an unused license, which doesn't cost a lot. I've done so many times, they all activate online and work well. However, I'm not sure if this legal outside the EU. ...
