Is too much to ask for Dude x64 windows client?

Wed May 31, 2023 2:18 pm

I hope you provide a x64 version of The Dude Client for windows, besides/instead of the 32bit version.

Is there any practical reason, except for the fashion of the moment?
What is wrong that a mere "transposition" from 32 to 64 bit, without touching anything else, would solve?

i think yes is too much to ask

i think currently there is other much more pressing tasks

The Dude has stopped its development for a good reason, it needs a complete overhaul to 64 bit not only for client but in the server side thats not a minor task, maybe with containers does not make much sense to invest time and resources in The Dude when you can deploy a container with a much more capable monitoring solution

most people asking for 64bit client is not for use in windows per se, is for use in windows emulated on ARM Mac which only emulates 64bit so its a very niche use

I use windows 64bit and use the dude client 32bit without problem

THANK YOU, finally someone who speaks for facts, and not just for requests,
THANKS again for pointing this out, I hadn't thought of that...

Correct, the "need" for 64-bit Dude client is for non-Window users ;). And not just ARM Macs, the Intel ones can't use 32-bit wine either since the MacOS kernel dropped 32-bit support long ago. Whether that's "very niche" case given Windows market share down to 53%, IDK ;)

... and we're a long way from some "new Dude" or "cross platform winbox" that offer non-wine options for us Mac users.
