Does PantherX run Microsoft Word or Adobe Photoshop?

Not yet. Well, it’s unlikely we’ll ever need any of those because PantherX comes with thousands of great, open source applications, that often rival their proprietary counterparts. Microsoft Office for example, is replaced by LibreOffice - which supports your Word, Excel and Power Point documents out of the box and much, much more.

We will release new updates as frequently as they are available. This includes both PantherX core updates as well as other software, you may be using on your Panther Alpha.

PantherX has been designed specifically for Panther Alpha but should run on any ARM, Intel or AMD computer with at least 512MB of RAM. We may consider supporting a number of popular third party devices in the future - to help increase adoption and reduce waste (if you have a working device, why get a new one).
