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.

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!

Pls support Linux

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.

@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.

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

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.

Have used Adobe software for over ten years. Today I migrated from W10 to PopOS, will be cancelling my subscription for the moment. Will definitely come back once they support Linux. Not a goodbye, but a "Hope to see you soon".

No point in crying here for Linux support. Linux market share is rising by breaking records in the last few months. Just wait patiently. In future, Adobe will be forced to support Linux for their own existence.
Vadim Andreyev commented
Still no Linux support? What happened? Is Adobe having a hard times? Will it be closed soon? Maybe it's time to switch from Adobe products, obviously this company has problems and apparently their software will have no support soon. Sad story of Adobe, it was a great company back in the days.

How shortsighted people at Adobe are.
Technical viability: I read here (https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro/premiere-pro-programming-language/td-p/8721554?page=1) that Premiere is mostly written in C++. By putting some #ifdef __linux__ and replace the required system calls, you should be able to (relatively) quickly do the job. I can bet that a similar programming trick is already in place to compile it for MAC, which is a unix-like operating system. So, a lot of work for porting it on linux is already there. You need some fine-tuning.
Market needs: not only a lot of people will definitely use it (me included), but also a lot of institutions (e.g., HEI). You will have the same market you already have.
You should say the real reason. Giving that the latest version of Adobe Reader for linux was issued 7 years ago and seems an ackward porting of the windows version, you should say the truth. Adobe does not have any interest in that, because MS and Apple are our buddy and we dont want to upset them. Being crystal clear would be nice to the people who pay to use this product.
