Following up on the plan for the next releases, I wanted to share more about our plans for making Vuo support more hardware / operating systems than just Mac.
Deploy compositions as Linux apps (including Raspberry Pi) is the #1 voted feature request. This would make it possible to develop compositions on macOS and run them on Linux. As some of the comments on that feature request noted, this would mean you could run Vuo on less expensive and more flexible hardware during exhibitions or performances.
We're thinking the first step will be deploying compositions to Linux. In addition to its popularity in terms of votes, in terms of implementation this feature would be a stepping stone toward deploying compositions to Windows. Since Linux is more similar to macOS than Windows is, we'd have to solve some of the problems that they have in common in order to get to Linux, but not all of the problems that we'll have to solve to get to Windows.
After that, we think the next step will be deploying compositions to Windows. That's still tentative, because we'll need to reassess the related technology at that point. (For example, maybe it's overly optimistic, but I would be thrilled if Windows Subsystem for Linux were mature enough to run most Vuo compositions by that time.)
If you use Vuo in your work, how will this plan affect you? Do you see anything important that we're overlooking?
