    I would only use Unity Editor if it runs on Linux.

    In Unity 2017.3.0f1, on a 4K monitor, with 'System Settings > General > User interface scaling' set to 'Double (Hi-DPI)', all Unity UI elements, windows, etc. remain tiny (by a factor of 2x in X and Y dimension).

    Notable exceptions (i.e. UI elements that are scaled up as expected):
    - Progress bar pop up window while important assets
    - Unity Editor menu bar
    - Main editor window title bar
    - Popup window title bars

    In other words:
    - UI elements drawn by the desktop/system are scaled correctly
    - UI drawn by Unity is not scaled up as it should be

    Editor launches, however BugReporter in Unity-2017.3.0f1 fails to launch for me, even after verifying lib dependencies are installed, and installing the extra `libpng-dev` mentioned in the release notes.

    If official support for a Linux editor were available, there's no question I'd be using Unity more. Windows 10 keeps physically destroying my systems, so I've had to move to Linux just to keep going with my projects. If I can't get Unity up and running fully soon, I'm going to have to consider a different game engine entirely. Too bad, really. I love Unity. And, while the beta builds work half-way, the way they are broken right now cripples the code I'm working with. Lack of tight MonoDevelop integration is the biggest killer right now. So, please Devs, consider full official support soon! I love your product!

    This is the best thing ever. Been using it for a while now ;)
    I just wish there soon will be an official support.

    For what it's worth, the Linux editor was my introduction to Unity, and it being available on my platform of choice definitely helped me get into and use it.

    I can't really speak to how many users it has brought to the platform, but here's one!

    Now if we can just get adobe on board I'd ride the waves to a funtoo Linux system.
