  1. I have been using Parallels for a long time. It works but it also hurts (more on this below). As far as subscription vs none, there used to be limitations to the one-of version in terms of number of cores and max RAM (this might have changed, but I don't think so). This is a problem when you have a multicore machine and you end up limited to only a few. There are some additional perks coming with the subscription version (including updates, and a la LabVIEW, the corresponding bug fixes). Be warned that their support is nowhere close to NI's, which is a problem when something fails badly (
  2. A word of caution (seriously): before you send people in space on a device simulated/tested with LabVIEW, keep in mind that a non-negligible fraction (I am not saying a large fraction, but one bug can be enough) of its algorithms/numerical codes are buggy and since they are closed source (for the most part), the only way to figure out is to run into inconsistencies or unexpected results. This takes a OCD scientific mind to discover, the hard way. Especially in the "uncommon" regimes, those which Dr Murphy likes to invoke at the worst time... As users, we've done our best to let NI know, b
  3. LabVIEW itself would be highly suspicious, according to these criteria. But wait...
  4. What's the idea? It doesn't know which package I have installed for what version and therefore cannot tell me whether a new version is available and I should check out. 19 pages of listing instead of the compact window I can easily filter and check out at a glance...
  5. Once the HTML is generated with the provided VIs on the source computer (json files, PNGs and some txt description files plus the boilerplate JS installed with FINALE), that HTML hierarchy can be uploaded on a website (e.g Github). The only thing that is needed is a http server (which is launched by the command on a local computer in the current FINALE distribution) serving the webpages and running the different js scripts. That could be done by cloud servers at minimal cost. This could be provided together with the source code in repositories for those who don't hav
  6. That's working well enough. Now we need to convince github and other repository cloud storage solutions to run this on their servers...
  7. The binary-no preview nature of LabVIEW code is obviously a problem.
  8. Note that the discussion was not about whether or not LabVIEW is on its way to dominate the landscape, but where it is discussed (both are certainly related).
  9. Are you seeing things between the lines? LV is not present among the first 50 listed... In case that helps shedding some more light on reality, here is yet another recent list essentially saying that LV is nowhere to be seen on Github or Stack Overflow: https://redmonk.com/sogrady/2020/07/27/language-rankings-6-20/ and I am not talking about the list itself, but the graph shown here: doesn't list LV, as far as I can tell. Now I am sure that if you limited this kind of analysis to NI's website or LAVAG, LV would hit top of the list in both cases...
  10. https://www.tiobe.com/tiobe-index/ LabVIEW dropped below 50... Might it be that its rank follows its average user age?
  11. That's the only thing I had noticed... as overdue (although of no use to me).
  12. That looks insidious indeed. It definitely doesn't work this way in 2019 SP1. This is the kind of mental note (close LV and restart to clear up memory) I would certainly forget every now and then. I am refraining from upgrading without pressing reasons, since chances are I will lose access to support for old NI hardware I haven't replaced yet (by non-NI ones, of course!). I realized too late I should have stuck to 2018 SP1 for hardware reasons (and as I described recently in the thread you linked to, because of a newly introduced project explorer bug among others). 2020 seems to be o
  13. Parallels has a few bugs up its sleeves too, so I am willing to lean toward that conclusion too considering that no one seems to have observed this. Is anyone using Parallels Desktop in "Coherence" mode and observing this phenomenon? There is no Windows' real estate per se in this mode, each Windows app's window appears as a regular macOS one (with the Windows style though), so I can't really imagine that the OSes could be mislocating the cursor... but this is all beyond my technical knowledge to really ponder. Thanks for looking into it though.
  14. Frequently enough that in my drive to make this world a better place, I decided this was a worthy campaign to galvanize the crowds for.
