    RE: Horizon on Mac, Linux, etc.

    To clear things up Horizon is exclusive to the Windows operating system.
    Meaning it is not coded to run on Mac OS or Linux, and I'm sure the devs have no plans to port them considering the program runs on .NET (Windows exclusive.)


    I have a Mac, can I run Horizon?
    Yes, you can do this any of the following ways.
    -Use a virtual machine such as VM Ware and run Windows in a virtual machine.
    -Dual boot Mac OS with Windows via Bootcamp or Parallels.
    Make sure to download the .NET Framework on your virtual machine.

    I'm a Linux user, can I use Horizon?
    -No, currently the only way to run .exe's on a Linux based OS is with a add-on called "Wine".
    Which still doesn't support .NET based applications.
    -According to some people there are virtual machine clients for Linux. Google them.

    If its so basic, why do people constantly make threads asking when a Mac compatible version will be released?

    You can always get the Virtual Box app for Linux too!

    Then this should be stickied, even then people will still look over it, instead of researching and such. you could do a search on the site "Horizon for mac" and you would get a thread stating that the devs arn't going to make one, they make a new thread asking "Horizon for mac pl0x?" I didn't mean for my comment to come on as trolling/sarcasm. I wouldn't of thanked the topic if i didn't think it was a good idea
