Yes, please support Linux. This would be a huge milestone. Thanks...
after looking into both technical viability and current market needs, it’s unfortunately become obvious that we’re not going to be able to act on this request in the near future.
I wanted thank everyone for the considerate and passionate discussion on this thread. This has been a great example of a meaningful conversation over a controversial subject that I don’t take for granted.

Hello guys! Cheers from Brazil.
I used Linux for years. For the last four years i've been using Windows for gamming and Adobe suite. Now with Steam PROTON Linux is finnaly a viable option for gamming. Sometime ago I tried Pop_OS for gamming and for my surprise it was capable of running Dark Souls 3 and GTA5 very smothly. I also tried Blender and Substance Painter, both run very well. And guess what... Substance Painter is Adobe Software! Anyway, I hope that Adobe sees the Linux potencial sometime in future.

Patrick, why did you say that it is "controversial?" - That is slanderous.
Does Adobe believe that? Companies port software all the time. Adobe can act when they want, and there is nothing "controversial" about porting software; Adobe does it all of the time.
This was not a "conversation." A conversation is only valid when both parties are listening. Adobe does not seem to listen to the millions of us that use Linux and the millions more that would use Linux if companies like Adobe would make their software available to us.
I am paying $251.88 a year to use Adobe Premiere Pro, and I am forced to keep a second computer running Windows just to run Adobe. The rest of what I do (Graduate work, home computing, and professional) use all Linux, except for the one large client that uses Adobe. Forcing me to a second computer just for that is wrong, and I am a paying customer!
That is all a reality, not how I believe or feel about anything, and I know that I am one of the millions of Linux users that also know.
Microsoft Edge (Dev.) is now available for Linux, and it runs a lot better on the Linux platform. They should make Office 365 available for Linux; I get Office 365 from my grad program.

Yes! I want to use Adobe on my Linux Computer because Linux is better with resources, it is more secure, and it does not demand that adobe pay Microsoft for access to their proprietary code. RedHat Linux is good enough for the DoD and other government agencies, why not my Desktop? There are more Linux users than there are iOS users, and Andriod is a form of Linux; why not make the jump and give it to the millions of Linux users? If Adobe does this, there will be millions more! Believe it!

I agree with that.
I still use the Creative Suite CS5 with Wine and Linux because there is no Linux version and Windows10 is definitely not an option to work fast and secure.
We don't even have to talk about data protection on Windows or Mac.
In short, the CreativeCloud programs for Linux (especially distributions based on Debian like Ubuntu or LinuxMint) would be an enormous progress... and offers the possibility to get me even for a paid subscription ;)
Daniel Torres commented
Yes plis. Imagine to have a Creative Distro

Someone will make a viable alternative eventually. Da Vinci Resolve and other professional industry apps work on Linux. Gotta happen eventually, if not Adobe, someone. BTW Reslove is a great alternative to Premiere-- and not like PS "alternatives" that can't actually do the work.
I see people have mentioned this below. It's very true. I switched to Resolve only when PP kept crashging my iMac. Resolve was perfect. After an initial shift - which was not bad at all - I'd never go back.

I happily was a Linux-only user for YEARS. The ONLY reason I bought Windows was just to use Adobe products. Although I did so resentfully.
Adobe, make your products available on Linux!
Jacob Stewart commented
Pls support Linux
Scott Bakkila commented
I'm a 25 year veteran of the video and film industry, and I would love to switch to flame on Linux. I can get a better machine out of it for less money. But I wish Adobe products were available on Linux with pro res support.
That would be ideal.
Joe Clay commented
@Hiroyasu, switch to Resolve. It works a lot better than Premiere when you've learned it and you don't have to jump around from program to program to finish a project. It's also WAY faster.
It's sad that this request has been declined. With all of the question marks concerning Apple at the moment, anyone still left on macOS would like a viable alternative to Windows. If there were a viable After Effects competitor, I'd be on Linux this instant. There's a legion like me. This didn't just blow up because of someone on twitter. Maybe it got noticed that way (because we're not all scrolling through this forum, we're working) but there's 11K votes on this. Like multiprocessing in AE, this is the most requested item on the forum by almost 10x.
Hiroyasu OHYAMA commented
If Adobe supported Premiere Pro (I don't care about other solutions) on GNU/Linux especially for Ubuntu distribution, I would definitely buy it!
Probly, they don't capable to do this and blame the user numbers.

They just make fun of Linux users

Please, i am using Ubuntu 20.04, and want to create animation for Telegram using after affect.

This would be great for small businesses that are at risk during the pandemic. Managing network at work is simpler on Linux.
I am forced to use Windows at my work because we are using Adobe graphics software.
But at home I must use alternatives (like gimp or inkscape), because I am a programmer and don't want to use system that limits me a lot.
So yes, I am another customer that will buy Adobe licence when Linux port will come.

Unfortunately i am bound to the adobe cc for the near future, having to use windows just to run work applications is a great inconvenience and not being abled to migrate to linux 100% has led to many problems for me. Please release statement of the probability of Adobe porting its software to linux.
Hector Santos commented
After years of using windows I have migrated to Linux and I am not looking back. I am sadly going to stop my subscription in the near future.
