    It's a shame Unity Dev's. You told us: "Your opinion counts. Help us make things better. Share your great idea for improving Unity or vote for other people’s." This is the most requested feature. It got more then 3x more than the second one suggestion. Still no answer.

    NO ANSWER AT ALL!!

    I know: you did a great job. Unity5 is free to use. Thats great. But it was a response to the UE4 pricing. You said that: "Free + 5% royalty is not free. Unity5 is FREE"
    UE4 is available on Linux too. They put the engine source on Github. Everyone can read it, compile it and so on.

    If I say "Your opinion counts" then I mean it. Not just saying and forget the whole thing. It's very disappointing that you handles your promises like that.

    This is honestly disgusting that you do not offer this.

    I'm more of a Debian kind of guy, but yeah it would be very useful and interesting to have a dedicated Linux version for Linux.

    I have been waiting for this since 2011. Looking for a way out.

    I have spent a few days testing the Unreal Engine on Linux, and this is my conclusion:

    You have to get used to a lot of compile time, as you have to compile the editor yourself, and the way that Unreal Engine works includes compiling C++ and shaders quite often. There are workflows you can set up to almost completely avoid this, it's outlined in their guidelines, but in the beginning, it gets a little frustrating.

    However, when it's running, which it does very well on both Intel and Nvidia cards, this engine is such a delight to work with. I will almost certainly never go back to making PC games in Unity, as I've gotten hooked on the Unreal pawn system and BSP map editing again, the workflow is just so much quicker.

    On top of that, the post processed lighting and many other rendering features of UE are a lot more appealing to look at, and it just makes the whole process of creating stuff more rewarding.

    So I am moving our project to Unreal Engine, even though it has more than a year's worth of code in it, as Unreal does have most of the features I was trying to develop built-in. I would still consider Unity for mobile games, but I've had enough of the sandboxing we're forced into with this engine, it's hurting development too much. Normally I wouldn't tell anyone what to do, but I'd strongly advise that you at least give Unreal Engine a chance, because they care a lot more about Linux developers than Unity does. If we can't rock the boat with votes and pleads, we can make a difference by leaving. But that's just my opinion.

    I only use Linux on my laptop as it provides me the best development environment for school, Hackathons, and class. The big exception to this is when I attend "Game Jams" I am unable to use Unity. This definitely hurts the quality of games I am able to produce. Having a native Linux client would be a blessing!

    Tested also virtualbox and win7 + Unity 4 / 5. Won't work either. Pls native Linux.
    Liked that engine on Windows very much. Good luck@unity

    I definitely vote this one, because, if i don't get a game out by the end of this year, my school laptop will have to have windows wiped off it if I'm going to keep it around. (Can't have corporate version on there, ye see?)

    Long story short, if this happened, I could simply take my (wiped) laptop home, then drop Ubuntu or something on it, and know my projects will still run! :) Or of course, if I can find a way of earning a bit of money by the end of the year, in comes Windows 10... :D
