The Windows and Macintosh versions of IGOR Pro are nearly identical except for some features that do not translate between the two operating systems. Some of the most significant differences:
- There is no direct equivalent in Windows IGOR Pro to AppleScript.
- There is no direct equivalent in Macintosh IGOR Pro to Windows DDE server or client communications.
IGOR Pro and Linux
At the present time Igor does not run under Linux. A Linux of Igor is a possibility for the future but not the near future.
Some users have had some success running Igor via Wine and via CodeWeavers' CrossOver Office Wine-based product. You can read about their experiences by searching the Igor mailing list database for "Linux" or you can view a summary in the Are you porting Igor to Linux? article in the support database.
