The version of Ubuntu 16.04 I had came straight from the Ubuntu website. I'd had it for a couple of years and kept playing around with it. I began to get discouraged with it when I could never get Wine working. I downloaded a free trial version of Crossover and it seemed to work on it quite well. But I wanted a Bible program that would run natively on Linux. I've tried Xiphos and some others and didn't really like them that much. Esword and theWord are both excellent programs and they both would run on the Ubuntu 16.04 and update 16.10 thru Crossover. Windows 10 stopped working on my laptop a couple years ago, hence the switch to Linux.
I'm running Mint 18.3 now on the laptop and it seems to work well. I'm thinking about partitioning the desktop and installing it there too, getting ready for the day it fails to Work with Windows 10. When Windows 10 updates I nearly always have to reinstall drivers that the updates remove. Microsoft tells me that my computer is just too old.
I run Acordance 12.2 on the Windows desktop, along with Wordsearch 11.0 and within the last few months I've been using BA 5.2 on it more and more. I've bought a lot of books for Wordsearch and I can still access them all via MyWSB no matter what operating system I'm on as long as I have an Internet connection.
I installed BA 5.2 on the Linux Mint 18.3 and I've thrown everything I can think of at it and it works great. Thank you, Tim
. I rarely do much with maps so that's not much of an issue for me. I do like using the language features of Bible Analyzer and a big thank you to Tim that they are very affordable
