mindrobots Posted March 11, 2015 Report Share Posted March 11, 2015 Hi, If you've been following along, the Win7 Laptop I've been using for FPGA work had a nervous breakdown and as a result is getting a big, new SSD tomorrow loaded with Linux Mint(Debian). It will become my new FPGA development system for both Xilinx and Altera. I'd prefer to run native linux applications but have no issues running a Windows VM and will need to for my Altera development work. For working with the Papilio and other Xilinx FPGAs will I have a better "user experience" under Windows or are the tools just as usable under Linux and Windows? The laptop has an I7, 8GB and (soon) a 1TB SSD, so it has horsepower to run a good sized VM. For the record, I'm OS agnostic (I run Win/OS X/Linux) but I'm trying to move away from Windows unless that is the only place the tools run. Regardless, I will need to get another Xilinx ISE license (what a pain they are!). Any thoughts, comments, suggestions? Thanks! Rick Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
