12 best applications running on Linux and Windows!

In the following article they will be mentioned applications, which are functionally the same or at least similar, whether they are on Windows or Linux.

  1. Spotify.


Now all you need to do is listen music which you like and not only is a subscription and you will immediately have access to the world's most popular music.

Not surprisingly, there is a version of Spotify for Linux. People on Spotify say that although they have done it themselves, it is not supported. But if one prefers Linux to his PC, then he might as well support it.

  1. YakYak.


Paradoxically, given the way it is executed ChromeThe Google Hangouts is not supported by Linux. However, there is a substitute in YakYak that can send and receive messages on Hangouts. Expect that Hangouts at the consumer level it will stop late 2019 or early 2020 and unfortunately Hangouts Meet for G Suite will not be compatible with YakYak.

  1. GIMP (instead of Photoshop).

Let's start from the basics. If you are a design professional then surely your Creative Cloud is your best choice Adobe, although it costs. The most popular substitute for Creative Cloud is GIMP. For your convenience you need to save the PSD files in RGB so that they can be read by GIMP. In any case it is one It's free selection.

  1. VirtualBox.


Although Parallels has introduced Windows integration into Macs, VirtualBox has been around for a long time, it's free and is a good solution for many platforms.

  1. Inkscape (instead of Illustrator).


If you save your files to .eps or .svg, you can move them to Inkscape, where there are many features that designers need. Also, since the last time we looked at Inkscape, an important new feature was added: The ability to open files in Illustrator's .ai format. But you might want to try PlayOnLinux, one script which can allow you to run Creative Cloud on Linux via Wine.

  1. LibreOffice (instead of Office 365).


LibreOffice is probably one of the best Linux applications. It contains many features you may need and is free on many platforms.

  1. Auto Text Expander for Chrome (instead of TextExpander).


While TextExpander runs everywhere on Macs or Windows, it doesn't have a Linux version. One solution that may be good on various platforms is Auto Text Expander for Chrome. It only works in Chrome, but it's a good step.

  1. dropbox.


Dropbox works normally on Linux, but limits its free operation to three Appliances. This limits the utility a little, but if you buy the subscription, you'll have even more flexibility.

  1. Tinkercad (instead of Fusion 360).


Fusion 360 is a much more capable product than Tinkercad. If you really need Fusion 360, the best thing to do is to install a VirtualBox VM with Windows and run it this way. Tinkercad, is a fun and fast design tool based on browser, from Autodesk, which allows you to start projects quickly with minimal difficulty.

  1. Healing (3D printing program)


When you are preparing a file for 3D printing, you are using a program called a slicer. One of the most popular is Cura. Cura works very well on Mac, Windows and Linux.

  1. Slack.


When it comes to team coordination, Slack owns the business world. He has also had great success in Linux.

  1. Evernote.


Evernote does not have a Linux client, but the company is improving web-based applications.
