Platform: Support for ARM Linux

Platforms

-

-

ARM Linux systems are on the rise and ARM hardware is getting better. Ubuntu are making phones / tablets based on ARM Linux. Other distros are also making ARM versions. Various people are putting Ubuntu on ARM Chromebooks (best selling laptop on Amazon). There are next to zero games for this platform. Unity should get ahead and bring their game engine to this new and growing platform.

    I understand an arm architecture linux may impose its limitations for a Unity build, but even if very limited, that is a demand for yesterday from us users. New embedded arm-based hardware boards are now able to run full-on neural nets inference. It's high time Unity recognized its potential and worked on it.

    This would be really interesting in too many ways, not only for games, a lot more! Thumbs up and praying for this to become a thing.

    Personally I'd love to use Unity as an alternative to Xamarin/Mono or Qt.

    It should expand horizons and allow development for a wide variety of Linux systems since they are a big part of the market like slots, arcade consoles, research developments. either in universities or independent.
    Because of the low cost and the wide range of possibilities offered by Linux, and in the case of the growth of ARM.

    Things like ASUS' (or is it ASUS's?) Tinker Board have potential for installations and portable demos ... if Unity was able to target them.

    I've had to move to Unreal Engine for a very important project, just because Unity doesn't support Linux ARM. It's a pity, as I had the project 99% finished in Unity without knowing that there was no support for Linux ARM, so now I have to learn UE (which is not that bad, just a bit stressful due to the time frame this project has) and remake all the project.

    I vote for this just so hopefully people in my situation don't have the same bad luck as me someday.

    Sounds to me all the people who may use this (and primarily as a toy) have already voted and/or commented on this. :) This sounds waaaaay too niche for anyone to put effort there. Nice try though.

    I have been working in Unity for years, I have recently branched into the SoC/single board world of Pi's & Pi clones. Some even have as much as 2-4 G of ram.
    Support for the ARM architecture on Ubuntu & Raspbian would be AWESOME!
    please seriously consider this. There are a fast growing number of small board ARM systems spreading out there.
    It would also open Unity up to the maker world and robotics.
    Do not stall, Unity technologies, this is a how new market....Unity running physical toys. are you guys going to pass that up?
