    Yeah it really should work, but please can you post about your difficulties on https://forum.unity.com/forums/graphics-experimental-previews.110/ as well? it's more visible to the team, mention your graphics drivers etc. I don't actually see a reason why it wouldn't work but then, I don't look at this source every day :)

    If it's possible to file a bug report and post the case number in that thread or topic (they'll email you it) then this will further increase chances (if reporter works on linux....) :D

    I have been using the Unity Linux editor for a while, and it is awesome!, i haved only a few problems that i can solved them so easy. As i see, maybe the editor could have an official release this year.

    Thank you devs for this amazing work!

    Please make it official already. It has been stable for a while.

    I use Linux as my main and the only one OS. I would see Unity official supported and without all those crazy UI bugs and other issues :)

    Neither Mac nor Windows are able to target all the supported platforms (see for example iOS and UWP). From my understanding, the same limitations will apply for the Linux Editor.

    Thank you for the good news! I moved to Ubuntu a decade ago and I am not going back to Windows. Its been a life saver having Unity for Linux.

    About time, with Windows 7 no longer being supported from next January 14th, 2020 on... I hope it's really as good as people say since I'll have to switch to Ubuntu. :)
