@tryingHard365 - Thanks for the reply.

I agree that trading using a machine on internet/remote desktop combination is not good and certainly not planning to have much interaction with remote machine. However wanted to have the "best" possible way(with acceptable limitations this setup is likely to bring) to access the remote desktop as needed basis and is the reason to explore this route.

Thank you once again for your valuable input.

@slickiam - Wanted to have sierra / some flavor of unix and wondering if the instructions provided in this thread - are they latest or do you happen to have any updated /recommended combination of components that you use?

Hi

Now I prefer Crunchbang Linux for SC, python/pandas, and for MOEX DMA API to built my another custom trading system.

Yet Another trading box: Debian 8 Jessie is used to run Linux DMA Terminal.

Debian 7 is much more reliable than any Ubuntu in my experience.

Also be careful using Wine on linux. It's better to wait for linux native SC version next year.


Quoting 
Also - Any specific RDP tool that you can recommend for whatever this linux flavor you recommend.

thanks in advance.

It depends.

@tryingHard365 gave the good point to use SSH or VNC.

I just wanted to add that years ago I loved Ubuntu. But then I grew up, and would never choose Ubuntu over Debian these days.

If I were to sway from Debian, it would probably be to Arch.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Didn't know MICEX had merged...

@slickiam Is this SC as native linux executable a confirmed thing? I don't remember seeing any plans/dates for it in Sierrachart forums from developers.

Thanks!

Ganz - thanks for the reply on this. Certainly crunchbang seems to be neatly built.

Hi All

This is an easy way to set CPU affinity

 
Code
wine SierraChart.exe& taskset -cp 0 $!; sleep 1; taskset -cp $!

@slickiam - Wondering what version of wine you currently use on crunchbang ( assuming you are using debian 7 wheezy).

Thanks

Guys, i used SC with Crossover (OSX Lion, Mac Pro 8Gb Ram, 2x ATI Radeon 5700, 4x Monitors).
Why i switched over to WIndows (yes, i hate it too) was because the Graphics performance with Crossover was so bad.
I use semitransparent extending rectangles a lot for S/R Zones in SC, and they killed the performance. Everything was painfully slow with SC when there were multiple of those rectangles at 4 charts.
After installing Windows 8,1 on the same Mac, SC worked like a charm from then on. Can put endless numbers of those zones on endless charts and still, everything is smooth and nice with sierra.

Is anybody else experiencing problems with those extending rectangles whild running Sierra through Wine/Crossover on OSX or Linux? Can anybody confirm smooth performance?

I'd give it another shot (because i really hate windows) if there is a trick to boost that 2D performance on wine @osx. I've read of you guys tuning it for Linux, but not OSX.

ps: well, when the native Linux version of SC comes out, i'm sold
