    It's great to see that the Linux version is still maintained. The Linux build's forum thread got frighteningly quiet after version 2018.2.7f1.

    BTW, There's one thing about the Linux build that I'd like to bring to your attention:

    Right now, if you're on a payed subscription, you can activate the license key twice. This is sufficient if you're developing on Windows or Mac. However, if you're doing the development on Linux, you have to juggle the two license activations between Linux (for development), Windows and Mac every time you release an update. Well of course only if the update is released for Windows/UWP and iOS/OSX.

    For those devs using the Linux build, it would be a improvement if a Unity Pro license could be activated three times. This would spare us from juggling the two license activation over three OS's.

    Just a minor inconvenience. Anyway, thank you for providing the Linux build.

    Linux is the future. Win10 is the last nail in the coffin for my relationship with MS, and many others. Valve is investing big in Linux as a gaming platform. Others will follow, as they did with Steam.

    I hate windows 10 and due to actions from Microsoft find myself looking at Linux once again. The Unity editor has been one of the very few reasons I haven't swapped operating systems.

    love linux. I'm using it as my personal OS. Im a developer and i cant use Unity cause i'm using the best OS in the world (Exactly i'm running Zorin OS 12, it's a weird Ubuntu). If I could, I would vote.

    Good thing! Would make unity build nodes easier to manage (linux is easier to automate installation as with windows).

    So many people are switching over to Linux now. Its #1 OS used for computer science in universities. Its stable for games and its supported by steam. Just think about all the things Linux users can do with Unity's framework. There are literally thousands of people out there that can build Unity to be bigger and better if they have access to it on Linux. I mean, that is how Linux started isn't it? You wouldn't even lose profit. Just look at Canonical, their Ubuntu destro still makes them profits even if it is open source. Plus Unity still uses microsoft's netframework 3.5 and so it needs an update anyway. Unity devs have all the reasons to support Linux you guys should totally just do it :D!!!!
