    Just do it! The open source community will support it.

    Hi,
    Me, and other Linux users, hope that Unity Editor for Linux can be run in our LINUX PC.
    How many LINUX users love UNITY and hope they can running Unity Editor on their LINUX PC, but you don't love your users.
    It's true what NETTLEBURRJAN said that:
    "If you can support OSX you can probably support at least Ubuntu without much difficulty. Why not do it?"

    Please think again and consider.
    Thank you.

    I have dual-boot with windows and linux. And while valve've released steam os, windows've turned away from stational-pc-path, more and more people learn linux and migrate into... I just want to delete !@#$%^ windows from my laptop and free around 20 GB. But i can't.

    Yep, I know about wine and dozen of soft I run under one. But, support still leaves a lot to be desired, bugs still crashes, and generally usability still lack.

    No way. Just wait.

    i don't understand why this hasn't been done :S i mean the mac version means at least opengl is supported and considering both mac and linux are based on unix it should be very easy to create a linux version.

    I am a strictly Linux user and developer. I don't use Wine and haven't had anything Microsoft branded in over a decade. I am currently looking for possible solutions for further gaming engine options, but curious to know why Unity rules itself out by simply not making a native developer's platform for an OS prefered by a large number of developers. The argument of needing many versions for dozens of distributions is nonesense. Most Linux users either use a distribution based on one of the top three major distros, or are comfortable with installing another Linux distro as a seperate lilo/grub option. Just make one with a Debian based package installer and you'll have at least 1/3 of Linux users and developers covered. I can even use DEB packages in Ubuntu without any special configs or added apps. I have absolutely no intentions of stuffing Billy G's wallet just to add useless clutter and resource drains to my work enviroment. I'm reasonably certain I am not the only person who feels that way, and for that reason, Unity will never likely see it's full potential realized until some serious and logical consideration be given for native development in Linux, without emulator (Wine) overhead or dependencies.

    Really something to think about. Linux uses less resources on the computer, Makeing more resources for the unity editor to do it's thing, Please consider!

    This is the single most requested feature from the entire unity community with nearly daily viewers coming to vote on this topic. How can they continue to refuse to support a linux editor?

    As a public school teacher, we use all open source and free software and Linux OS to keep costs down. I am currently teaching Blender and WebGL to the students. I would like to be able to include Unity3D for these future developers to learn. Hopefully Unity can stay viable in this more and more platform agnostic world and provide a native Linux editor. Not sure why OSX Unix has an editor but not one for Linux.

    This would be the best thing to happen to Unity. Unity can't be called truly multi-platform if it doesn't support all major desktop operating systems.
