Article: Dedoose Desktop App

The Dedoose Desktop App is available for Windows, OSX (Mac), and Linux (via Wine). For optimal performance and compatibility, please assure that your operating system is kept up to date and that you have at least 4GB of memory available. Your system's single core speed and amount of memory will directly impact the App's performance on large data sets.
