    Game development industry has grown significantly over the past 30 years or so. What used to be just PONG became all the games we play and love today.

    Also, this passion for gaming became so strong on some of us that made us go to the next step, becoming a developer. Creating a new game. Because we wanted to tell people a story. Because we wanted to make something similar to what already exists or even to go further and go where no other game developer has gone before... :)

    Tools like Unity help people creating these ideas. Making them real. And by doing so, it helps programmers and artists everywhere to share their ideas.

    It's the same with Linux. Linux is an opensource operating system that has been around for decades and have been helping people on every segment of society to grow.

    Internet wouldn't be what it is today without it.

    Right now we're just asking you guys to make this awesome tool that is Unity available on linux so that more and more developers can share their ideas with world.

    Unity is the only reason why i still need a dual boot with windows :-/
    Mac OS X is not an option to me

    It's sad that Unity Editor doesn't support the only os that is free and without limitations.

    Guys, we would really LOVE this feature, especially now, that SteamOS is beginning to actually exist. Please create a Linux version of the editor, your work will be appreciated by the Linux community, that's for sure.

    @EDVE98 The reason for me is this: I've started using Unity for a couple of years ago. Back in that day, I voted for a linux editor. Today is 2015, Unity is much greater than those times, but we still don't have the answer why the Unity team ignoring this request. Unreal engine's editor is a bit slow for my machine ( 2010 mid MBP 13" ) and I thought if Unity 5 will be free then I'll use it continuously instead of Unreal Engine 4, because I have some (not much) experience with it.
    Today I have really started to think that I must move away from OSX and the only thing that doesn't work on Linux is Unity. Maybe I'll try to use Unreal... I don't know yet. But as I quoted, the Unity team says: "Your opinion counts" ... well I still think that they have to answer for a 5 year old request, which is the most wanted feature at all in Unity. If they will accomplish to post a reply (after 5 years(!)) or maybe explain it why they didn't answered to this at all, then I will be happy.

    And for the love of symmetry I just voted to make it 18481 votes.

    How many more people should vote to at least have an official statement? Or there is one already? If so why isn't this feature request closed?

    Thanks.

    I honestly wanted this so badly I searched for it on Google. I was so "amazed" that the first result is this wiki page:

    http://wiki.unity3d.com/index.php/Running_Unity_on_Linux_through_Wine .

    It took me almost 3 days, but now it runs on Ubuntu! Yes it took me 3 days! A little too much for an install but way easier than it is for the guys at unity to port it to our favorite linux distro
