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.

C'mon on Adobe, do something!

The big corporations does not care about customers. They care only about stock value. Only short term measures are valued because the long term does not fit for stock holders. They need right now the money, money, money. Luckily the people are not idiots and use the alternative program like DaVinci Resolve.

I have ditched Adobe Premier Pro after Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7.
I made the change to Linux and DaVinci Resolve. I paid good money for CS3 Creative Suite which I can no longer use because it is no longer supported. I moved to CS6 and have had nothing but problems running it on Windows OS.
If you seriously think there isn't enough demand for running Adobe products on Linux OS then your are blind. AlI you need to do is look at the number of people no longer subscribing to Adobe Creative Cloud.
I would also like to add that companies such as Microsoft, Adobe and Apple have all used Linux for free in one way or another and its time you give back something to those who have supported your products for so many years.

I want to need adobe software on Linux
Rogerio Lamarques commented
I don't use products like Adobe Photoshop or Adobe ilustrator because it isn't running natively on Linux. I see no problems in paying for quality. Only here in my company would be around 20 licenses of adobe packages if they were available for linux.
Tatyana Kim commented
I only use Windows for the programs she supports. If those programs had appeared on Linux, I would have switched to it immediately.
Andrew Fosdike commented
My understanding is that adobe is only likely to do this if it brings them a significant amount of new customers. Anyone who is keeping a copy of windows around just to run adobe products will not help. The only way to get this to happen is for enough people to switch away from adobe, so that they will want to bring them back.

When this gonna become true? The only reason I have Windows is because Adobe Suite. It would be great to work in Linux.
I'm waiting for the day when Affinity will bring their apps to Linux and Adobe will lose their clients, because as a lot of people know, Affinity apps are cheaper than Adobe apps and lighter to run than adobe. Sorry Adobe, but it's true.
Everybody knows Linux is better than Windows, but people will never use Linux, if big companies as Adobe don't bring their apps to Linux.
In my opinion, if adobe supports linux, linux would have more users. Please Adobe support this OS.
Viacheslav Isaev commented
Would be nice to have support on Linux!
James Day commented
Ok well im now convinced that Adobe will never do what people have been asking for over 10 years now. Im just going to accept the Davinci Resolve learning curve and get on with my life. F*&# you Adobe! See you never!

If they don't Port Adobe on Linux please support other open source free software ..give your money to those open source software instead of Adobe ...they are only making fun of Linux users by this form
Gregory Hirsh commented
So, now, here's how we proceed (we actually have options).
First, for those looking for design software at large:
1. Visit Afinity photo's forum and continue to put the pressure on them (convince them that there is a genuine chance to steal an untapped market from their number 1 competitor, Adobe:
2. Help us throw our money where our mouth is by supporting Krita and GIMP with a portion of the money you would have happily given Adobe (help them reach the success that the free and open source Blender found in the 3D world)
For those looking for Desktop Publishing (DTP), check out Viva:
If you are looking for a Non Linear Video Editor and Compositor, try Davinci Resolve (there are a lot of non Linux folks making the switch on its own merits):
Many of us will have to stick with Adobe (hence stick with Windows or Mac), for the foreseeable future. Those of you, however, who create content that doesn't have to fit into somebody else's pipeline, I really do think you have options on Linux (and they're actually pretty fantastic - Krita, Inkscape, Darktable, Raw Therapee, GIMP, etc.). Make the jump and support them with donations (they already do wonders with very little money - a small percentage of what you would otherwise be giving to Adobe will be a real boon - but the support is key - it's all too easy to just take their free products with out giving back).
I think the future is bright for Linux users. Adobe would have given us an amazing boost, but, none the less, I think the party can continue happily without them.
UPDATE: Gravit Designer (as mentioned by Paul below), looks promising as well:
Paul Clay commented
Noooooo! Please change your mind! MacOS is degrading as a general development platform as they make it more like iOS. I've moved most of my linux graphicUI/UX design work to Gravit designer for now so I don't have to switch between machines as often.

It's never going to happen stop dreaming about it :)

Demorou para acontecer!
Ahmed EL-Zaeem commented
We need adobe everywhere and if some apps are on android then why not for linux?
Heston L'abbé commented
Adobe is the last and only holdout in our DCC toolchain who does not natively support Linux. This has led to aggressive migration efforts away from Adobe products.
However, we would be more than pleased if Adobe would get with the times and support Linux like everyone else.
