    Plus 10 votes from me. Currently using inside VirtualBox - slow and buggy, but better than switching, hopefully Intel will release KVMGT soon to share intel graphics between host ans guest OS and run VM's with better performance. Native support will be much better however.

    This remains my first priority request. I hate flicking backwards and forwards and I won't buy another version of windows. I really like crunchbang. It's nice, I wish I could develop in it. :(

    I know for a fact there are developers who work for Unity themselves who run the Editor on linux. I think the excuse I was given at the time by a Unity dev were support costs for all the different linux distros out there. Frankly, I think they only need to support three: Ubuntu, Red Hat and Debian. Still, we're talking about support for three new OSs, not one.

    Voted all my 10 votes. Just would be amazing every time u have to boot from windows or use whine but this would be NO alternative for a native Editor

    Gotta concur on this one, the one reason I don't ever use unity3d at the moment is because I have to reboot to windows, and the wine option is unappealing. As a developer for linux it's degrading having to boot into windows to develop for linux, meaning I'm doing it less and less and looking at other game engines that don't require me to reboot more and more. This is a must have feature for the next release of Unity! The only reason I'd stop paying is because this very problem.

    How many Linux users actually run Windows alongside it just to use Unity? Seriously UT. I know a linux editor needs to be financed and such, but why add support to run games on linux while most of the people here don't even care about that? Most of the people DO care about using the editor on linux though. Dont't you think that money was better spent on a editor for linux instead of support for playing games on Ubuntu?

    Seems odd that Unity would support publishing to Linux but not developing on Linux. After all, Linux is used by developers more than by anyone else.

    I haven't tried it yet, but I've got a new laptop and I'm not looking forward to trying to get this to work with WINE. The process looks like a _huge_ pain in the ass.

    What is hexafixel, EDVE98 ? I couldn't find by googling it... Because if it is another engine, it may also be interesting for me ^^
