I've had a similar viewpoint - that broadening the developer palette to several more platforms sounds like a lot of maintenance. But there might be an argument for jumping from 'one ship to another' and not going back. Houdini had/has some Linux distros. The way co's are trying to funnel customers towards a simple interaction with a computer .... 'power users' will naturally gravitate towards linux/unix.

+1

... Linux seems to get more popular, since Valve started porting their Games and doing some open source stuff for this :)

If TouchDesigner had been available on Linux, we would have adopted it sooner, and would happily abandon Windows.

I can see that casual users find a Windows (or more, Mac) app easier, but are they the main profit driver for derivative?

Please do not underestimate the importance of a linux version. I've lost multiple days trying to create a stable reproducable production setup on windows. I've done this before on linux without any problems. I can literally create an ubuntu boot usb stick, which install a complete kiosk perfectly everytime. I'm not even able to restore a simple windows backup back to a normal working state. Working with windows requires an immense amount of trial and error. It's absolutely great that we now have a working mac version. Let's go all the way no and go full cross-platform, because for heavy-duty, reproducable, unittestable production setups: windows mean absolute hell.

Just for clarification: I'm literally begging you to support linux. I'm not willing to continue using touchdesigner if I have to constantly watch my kiosk system break, because windows is simply not made for that purpose. Linux is completely customizable to the point that the window manager runs nothing but touchplayer.

Please take this seriously.

Totally agree!

I'll love to have a linux version since i've switched to windows just for TouchDesigner!

So please take it seriously!

Many thanks
