There are multiple companies that rent out access to a Mac in the cloud. I used one of them for a few months when I had to port an Android app to iOS, which needs a Mac to compile. If you only need your Mac for a few hours per year, this is probably the cheapest option. Resetting "your" mac is just a question of a few minutes to get a new, freshly ...

Is it possible (and legal) to buy a macOS license to have it as a VM on my Linux machine? No - at least not according to Apple's software license agreement for MacOS. The license agreement for MacOS Big Sur (others are similar) explicitly says (emphasis mine): you are granted a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license: [...] (iii) to install, use ...

As others have said, the only way to legally virtualize Mac OS X (according toApple's EULA) is on Apple hardware. So the purchase you need to make isn't a software purchase, it's a hardware purchase: you need to buy a Mac. With Intel (x86) Apple hardware, there's three ways you can do this: 1. Use VMWare ESXi as the host OS ESXi is VMware's professional ...

I'm currently using Ubuntu, but there are still some apps I wanted to use on macOS. I found macOS-Simple-KVM. However, there will be a bit of tweaking you'll need to do before being able to use the App Store on it, and it's limited to macOS Catalina. For Windows, I just use VirtualBox and my purchased license of Windows 10. Edit: My apologies. I just ...

You can legitimately download and run VM specifically for testing purposes (which is exactly what you are doing) directly from Microsoft at a price of $0.00. You just need to know where to go. It's currently on Microsoft Edge Developer site, but it periodically moves location for one reason or another. There are several OS & browser combinations ...

If you want something pretty and yet professional and highly functional, you might want to check out GitKraken. It is not open-source, but free for personal use. Another one that is open-source is GitAhead, but I find it a bit more awkward to use, and not as fully-featured as GitKraken.

Okular has a Markdown backend, which allows it to display Markdown-formated text. On Debian-based systems (like Ubuntu) you might have to install the okular-extra-backends package to use it. The nice thing about Okular is that it is just a plain viewer. You can use your text editor of choice, and as soon as you save the Markdown document, Okular reloads the ...

There is also an amazing one here on GitHub appropriately named Glow... It's absolutely lightweight. You don't even need to leave the terminal. Works on Linux, Mac and Windows. Here's a simple markdown text I created quickly to view with Glow. It only consists of an ordinary(non-marked-down) line of text, an H1 header, a horizontal rule, a block quote line, ...

I have recently installed Jitsi Meet for that purpose. It is self-hosted, on a Debian server in my case. The installation really was as simple as a few steps: wget -qO - https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi-key.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add - sudo sh -c "echo 'deb https://download.jitsi.org stable/' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jitsi-stable.list" sudo apt-get -y ...

BigBlueButton would meet your requirements: open-source: Yes. Does not require to own a server or domain (by me): While you can self-host it, there are providers offering it for you. Though BBB itself being open source, that would most likely mean to pay for the (hosting) service. Conference Calling: Yes. Screen Sharing: Yes. Combining the two: I've ...

This looks like an ideal task for Inscape. It is free, GPL 2. It runs on Linux. It's considerably small, 107 MB download size. That's less than half of Affinity Deisgner, a comparable commercial product. So it should fit on older PCs with little disk space available. The startup time is certainly not very fast, but once started it's ok. It's a program for ...

But the opera's addon keepasshelper(https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/keepasshelper/) cant connect to it at localhost:19455, as keepassx seems to not run a server at all.. At least I can use keepassx to show the url on whatever browser I want, and it has an ...

"Linux System Administration" is quite a large subject. Administering a Red Hat based distribution (like Fedora, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux) is similar, but a little different to a Debian based system (like Debian, Ubuntu, Raspbian) and also different from other bases, like Arch, Alpine, Android or distributions of Linux packages installed on ...

There is a project on GitHub which converts abbyXML into hOCR. hOCR itself is XHTML, which means, that you could display it in the browser, right away, by simply loading it. You will need an XSL-T processor to do the transformation, however. The recommended one, these days, would be SaxonHE, which is the open-source edition of Saxon. Converting the XML into ...

There are three major video players on Linux: VLC, which you've indicated you don't want, MPlayer and forks (MPlayer2, MPV) Xine and assorted frontends (GXine, etc.) All three of them meet the "plays many formats" criteria.
