Peach,

Surely you've had the chance to bring this up at a meeting. Was it soundly and sternly shot-down or taken as a serious request?

Please know that I would very much like to purchase a Pro subscription, but cannot do so until Linux becomes a supported SDK host platform.

Thank you,
Paul M Edwards

Yes, it has come up.

Whether or not we act on requests (especially requests as large as this one) really depends on how much interest people show in it.

Adding your +1 in threads like this is a good way of showing that interest.

Unfortunately that's all I have to add at the moment.

Unfortunately I would have to say: -1 for Linux support.

Of course an added OS is a plus, but if this takes away resources from other areas of development I'd gladly say 'screw Linux'. For the 3D software I use I would like Linux support, because it allows me to build a render farm on Linux (for distributed rendering) which would save me a pretty penny. I don't feel the same need for Corona for which the simulator runs on pretty low end (= cheap) hardware either way.

Sorry Paul and Emerson! Just my two cents.

Yup.
Lots for them to do without trying to rewrite for Linux, unless they happen to be already using a cross compiler.
Is WINE not a possibility here?
A vm?

Have any of you tried running corona via crossover ?

Or wine?

Another solution would be to install windows xp on virtual box inside your Linux installation. Runs fantastic (even windows 7 does)

I used wine in Ubuntu before but it didn't work
