  1. #1 Resolve Linux Lite 
    With Linux becoming a powerful Resolve option, allowing greater configuration, a Resolve Linux Lite free version would be desirable. Probably running on Ubuntu, and allowing the community to test out the Linux platform, and installation procedures before committing. Should work without the 30K panel also.

    Standard $1k version works just fine without the $30k panel.
    As far as OS goes, it is already on two Enterprise level distros- CentOS and RHEL. What you're asking is for BMD to port it's flagship software to a gamers platform, while spending considerable time doing it.
    Still think it's a good idea?

    no.. you are right... but centOS can be tough to set up, and apparently some research has been done by resolve on ubuntu, and maybe a trial could be released... just my 2 cents, btw.

    Setting up resolve on centos is as easy as anything else- start from a DVD and everything is installed automatically. What is so difficult?

    The key would be in convincing BMD to allow using any 3rd party panels with Resolve Linux other than the $29,995 daVinci Control Surface. My observation is that this is purely a marketing problem.

    I wouldn't mind them even jacking the price up to $2000-$3000 if the Linux version were rock-solid and could still use (say) the Tangent Elements, Wave, and Avid Artist panels.
