The last version of linux I created a bootable disk for was in 2012.     And I'd noticed that it was better at picking up my hardware than earlier versions.   So, my venerable old war horse and all its accouterments should be recognized handily by these new distros.  That is my thinking going in now, 6 years later on 11 year old hardware mixed with newer stuff like the 3 SSD's. 
I'll finish this new render and go for Nero 9.

Oh, I remember now why I bought this particular motherboard.   Durability, it has all solid caps, dual BIOS, redundant power regulators on all lines, 6 SATA 3 ports and 12 USB2 ports.  The day I bought it, it was state of the art.   We all know how that goes though!  Heh!  It was a good investment I think. 
It was Woohoo twice as fast and powerful as its predecessor, the AMD A64 X2 4800+ with 4 gigs DDR.  So maybe I shouldn't bother resurrecting that one.  I mean, sure I paid $1015 for the CPU when I got it, and was on a waiting list for it to be released in the first place.   Then, a pair of EVGA nvidia 7800GTX PCIe x16 vid cards and whoosh, I'm rendering in Poser 6 and DS (beta) 0.1.8nnn and 64 bits (BETA!) XP Pro 64 OEM.  The only flavor it even came in. 
Running THAT machine is when I needed Linux to have a look at various things of hardware that came my way back then.   Bloody Windows.   PDG, Sir Knight, there is no need to tell you guys that M$ really pickled things up under the hood.  But, I recall that to even enable certain hardware and software they didn't like required cheating.  ergo-the Linux boot, read, set specific bits to this and that and WHAT 'warranty' ???   Oh well.  It worked.
Linux may be needed to kill M$ access and control to my W10 system.   And if I end up killing that tiny tablet, well I've borked more expensive things with one simple touch of a hot soldering iron. Soooo.  Can't hurt the $96.00 tablet too bad methinks...
(still rendering a Star Carrier scene with Pocket Star and a Genesis 2 Female Pilot, gonna be a while yet!)

Is there a definitive answer to this question:   Does Poser work in Linux?   WiNE?

Used to up to and including PP2012. Haven't tried since then. I no longer run a Linux box exclusively.

oh RR u invented a new word I lurve it


is several programs for making a usb stick (thumbdrive / woteva) as a bootable drive I used one called rufus {google find}but then I found out neither of my comps will boot from usb, maybe a bios update would fix I not looked


MacG some parts of poser work as far as I know , but some parts DONT but thats a changeable thing as diff peeps dig in an fix stuff
as PDG I not messed for a while but I think all dynamics was not working, was an issue for me maybe not u ?
I've never tried running windows in a sandbox in Linux
if that's a workable solution and I try before u I will yell out

I haven't tried to boot these ISO's, so they may or may not.   Boot to optical drive on SATA or the single IDE is ok, but USB2 was new when I got this mobo.  I THINK there is a way to boot USB Flash or spinner.  Gotta read up on that.

Sounds like you're having fun too Hedd!

I am ok with dynamics not working.   So it's sort of a child process running a child process and maybe try to run a child process?   Nah it wouldn't render or go Materials Room if that was it.
