    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.

        I bought y'all's CS3 software back on mac back in the day on a student license (probably nearly a decade ago at this point) and I would gladly rejoin the adobe ecosystem if you made your modern software function on Ubuntu today.

        I am a creative professional and I head up an art team at my company and I would strongly urge supporting Linux. There needs to be another OS choice aside from Mac OS which I have frankly grown tired of using as it is not as strong system as it once was. Over the last several years it has become more of a chore to work with. As fo Windows I don't want to use it for my creative work. Having Adobe Creative Cloud available at least on Unbuntu to start would be a god send to me.

        Please consider supporting Linux. Ubuntu would be a great professional/corporate partner for Adobe to offer support for a native version of their applications. Currently, I have to "unofficially" install a patched copy of Photoshop on Linux Mint, even though I am licensed. I use similar nonlinear editing tools on Linux, but they don't match the capability of Premier Pro. Windows is terrible and filled with bloatware and I really dislike using it.

        For me, I would LOVE to see After Effects, Premier, and Photoshop function on Linux. These three apps would be all that Adobe needs to serve professional video and editing needs. As resources allow, port over InDesign and so on, but bring over the basics.

        Support linux, please. Whith the new standard packages, stability and other softwares already used in Linux, your solutions are welcome. Sugestion: Use the comunity for help you testing in many environments.
