Hi folks, new user here with a few questions.
I am putting together a new computer to give v18 a try (i5-8600k, Asus Prime Z370-A motherboard, 16GB of Crucial Dominator 3466mhz DDR4, XPG SX8200 NVMe 480GB SSD (boot-OS-Bricscad) and Seagate 7200 firecuda HD (storage), Noctua cpu cooler and fans, Nvidia Quadro P1000 graphics card) (Didn't seem fair to try it on my aging computer, and assuming it works, I won't have to resinstall). I've drawn up a couple of modest presentations in Shape, and while it feels a little "new", it also seems to have structural advantages over Sketchup.
So my initial question (possibly of many) is whether an all linux setup of v18Platinum and Shape (when available) is ready and viable for normal use, or should I also look into running the windows version in an emulator (wine, etc), or to buy an copy of win10 and perhaps another SSD and plan on dual booting. I have another windows machine that I dual boot for a few windows only programs but use linux for general use (Opensuse Tumbleweed). I am asking now, because its usually easier to install windows first, than linux when dual booting.
The second question is are there any configuration or installation issues that I should be aware of, or alternate drive/storage/partitioning options I should consider? Re Opensuse, should I use Leap rather than Tumbleweed?
I have a few other questions that I'll post in the appropriate forum categories.
