Pro/E To Support Linux

News In a first for the product design industry, PTC announced its intention to support the Linux operating system for Pro/ENGINEER®. Pro/ENGINEER, PTC's flagship mechanical computer aided design (MCAD) application, gives users the power to create advanced, high-quality product models and designs that result in superior products. With the release of a Linux supported Pro/ENGINEER, PTC plans to accommodate the growing demand from top design engineers to support the Linux open-source operating system.

PTC also announced its intention to align with the Hewlett-Packard Company as the Linux partner for PTC's Pro/ENGINEER. Working with HP, PTC intends to support two popular Linux distributions, including Red Hat, on the full range of 32-bit Intel-based architecture workstations available from HP with the release of Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire later this year.

Now that there is reliable 3D OpenGL graphics hardware for Linux (thanks to NVIDIA), many more interactive engineering programs will be finding their way to Linux.
