    Hello everyone,

    first of all: thanks to all the people who joined in the last two days to vote and comment on this particular item. Please stick around and tell us what else you’d like to see implemented or improved moving forward.

    If you were wondering why this post was offline for a couple of hours: it’s because of this quick surge in votes. It triggered a spam filter (and it took me a little while to figure out how to undo this without losing the comments).

    Since several people posted in the meantime about Adobe not being interested in your feedback, let me assure you that this is about as far from the reality as it gets. We truly appreciate your candid feedback.

    That said, a word of caution: while this item is now at the top due to a person with a good following on Twitter creating awareness, it doesn’t mean it immediately becomes our top priority. It’s been voted for since April, and never made it to the top 100 before this dramatic surge on Dec 11th.

    And yet another word of caution in an attempt to set expectations correctly: while we’re gonna use this request as another trigger to redo market analysis for the need to port to linux, it’s been true for many years that the vast majority of our user base wouldn’t consider it as an alternative to currently supported platforms. Unless that has changed significantly, keeping the balance between dealing with other request versus adding another platform might not make it viable to add support for linux.

    As I’ve worked for a company doing Win, MacOS and Linux prior to joining Adobe, I’ll add a bit of color to this request: doing Linux isn’t really about adding one OS, it’s at least several, if not many. Putting software that’s demanding on CPU, GPU and then some onto a linux system means developing and testing against several of the major flavours if you expect great results.
    It’s also true that our large partner eco-system is mostly not on Linux today, so you’d be losing a ton of functionality outside the core application for years to come.

    In a nutshell: this isn’t a simple thing to do – but we’re gonna take another hard look as to what’s the demand as I already mentioned above.

    Stay tuned – and thanks again for coming to this forum to voice your ideas.

        It seems strange that there isnt any response since over a month.
        Creative Cloud on linux would be a huge step in the right direction. Let creatives be creative no matter what OS they want to use!

        I have to dual boot into windows just because ADOBE XD is not available on linux and its very painful to switch OS every now and then.

        I like thousands of others would rather be on Linux than Windows! My computer is built for Windows/gaming, but runs Linux optimally far better than Windows can! Most if not all the games I play are on Linux Steam anyways! Funny enough, those run far better than their windows counter parts. I would definitely switch to ubuntu or Mint if Adobe Suite were to be ported!

        We're switching to Ubuntu regardless of Adobe's support, however, the only apps we're missing are from Adobe. Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere (although DaVinci is a good alternative for us).

        @Patrick Palmer hello :D is there any news/update on what has been going on? thank you!

        This would be so awesome to have on Linux. Not only would it disrupt the monopoly microsoft has on the computer market, but would also make Linux a MUCH more viable option to consumers. I don't know if Adobe realizes this, but if they go through with this, this is likely going to cause a major change in what OS consumers use...

        If Adobe will port Creative Cloud to Linux - in next minute i will move from this F@... windows to linux

      • Pixel_Lime commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am very surprised that DaVinci Resolve ported for Linux, but Premiere Pro and After Effects there is no. I hope Adobe will ported their programs to Linux, this is sorely lacking.

        My regards! In fact, Linux users are much more than statistics show! I am among them. And the reluctance of other developers to create software for this operating system is explained, as I understand it, only by commercial considerations of payment for their work. All good!

        Agreed! It's a shame that Adobe does not supports Linux! :-( There are a lot of people, who use Linux...
