None, and dont forget the Linux crowd likes to modify and tweak software so they'll end up with a hand full of incompatible GQ-4X software distros.

Yes a hand full of GQ-4X software distros, like Linux.

I'm evaluating leaving Windows 10 and going to Linux. I just installed Pop_OS, a Debian/Umbuntu based Linux and so far it is doing very well. This is one of the programs that may force me to get a cheep laptop to run Win10 and just store it with the burner if there is no hope for a Linux port. I would think this would be on the road map some place as MacOS is FreeBSD based and therefore very Linux like so doing a Linux or MacOS version would lead to the other very easily. I don't need, nor do I care if you open source your product. It's your product and you can close or open it if you wish. I have an nVidia graphics card and run the closed source bin. I just want the best computing experience I can get and I'm getting tired of MS Windows bloat. In my opinion, the last good computer Apple produced was the 65C816 based IIgs. :) I have an older Macbook Pro running 10.13.6 as I needed one program (applesauce), though they are working on a Linux port of that as well. I'm down to about 3 programs at this point keeping me on Windows and I hope that a port will occur or a Windows VM will work.

I suppose you could run a VM.

The software should work fine in virtualbox as long as you install the os extensions and remember to add a USB 2.0 device in the advanced options for the machine settings.

I'm running the software for a TL8676II on a Mac in an XPSP3 virtual box, although there is also a linux/mac open source (bare bones) project which works fine for that programmer.

I haven't received my GQ04X4 yet, but was not happy to see no Linux or mac software available. I almost cancelled the order but figured I'd give it a try in a virtual machine. I absolutely hate having to use a virtual machine but the pain of a virtual machine for one task is less paint than windows for every task.

Problem with this approach is you need a $125 windows license for this one program unless you find an old copy of XP with serial. Luckily I already had one set up for the TL866II.

There is a Linux version for the GQ-5X.

Thats interesting. I did email MCUMall today and was told there is a linux and mac version, but I haven't any details.

So far I can't get my new 4x4 to work under VirtualBox on my Mac even though the driver is installed and working.
