    It is possible it will run on top of wine but there is no native application for Linux; apart from trying it out with wine, other options are to dual boot with a Windows machine that can run it or create a Windows virtual machine in which to run it within Linux.

    Are you sure softimage can be run on wine?
    Because my wine application database recoredde it s garbage..
    And how do you make a windows virtual amchine..
    So if i see ... my options are..
    Stay on windows..
    get back to opensuse and use Windows virtual machine...
    Or Try fedora as fedora is compatible...
    any more advices?

    A lot depends on your long term aims; at the moment I don't see Linux being the place where softimage is going to be supported in the near future. So the question is whether there are aspects of Linux which make it preferable to run two operating systems side by side.

    I began dual booting Linux and Windows in 2000 because there were some Linux programs that were helpful to me in my work which weren't available in Windows; if there are Linux programs you would like to use that are not available in Windows, this is certainly an option.

    I still have one Windows program on an old dual boot computer which I still use because there is no easy Linux alternative but otherwise I have been using Linux for pretty well everything since 2006.

    But I am not a developer, just a user. If you have the hardware, running a virtual machine is generally reckoned to be the best option for a developer and for this you have several options including virtualbox.

    I have been browsing through the articles of vmware.. it showed more of linux being run on windows rather then the reverse...
    although even tjhe would be suffice..
    But it gives a link to download Os.zip whihc doesnt work..
    I mean the link is broken..
    If u know anybody who would have that file.. Please can u give it to me?

    OpenSuse and Fedora are really similar. It should be possible
    though likely difficult to get it running on Suse.
