I see that Affinity has a very strong resistance to launch a version for linux.

In hollywood more linux is used than windows and I believe that it can make many users who already use windows and want to change their systems go to linux.

The company is in doubt if it will recover the money or not and I think so, if it was not worth launching Linux software to Editshare and Black Magic would not launch its video editors for linux.

I see a lot of excuses for not launching your software for linux, I think you should review it, because it sounds prejudiced

already 2 large Linux threads as well as smaller ones for people who seem to miss them. I would suggest you go to one of the 2 big ones and post. 

And there is no prejudice, they are a free company can do as you like. The Linux community is not owed anything. It may be bad for Affinity or just fine for them. It is their call, they are in it to make money so they can continue to create software that people will want to use to in turn make more money.

yes, the company is free to do whatever it wants, only that it has the potential to grow more and win more customers.

Interestingly, Linux proponents have some "very strong resistance" to respecting the rules of the forum, or to use search functions :-)

Please search first, it may well be that you have a suggestion that others also want. If so add your feelings to their thread.

Guys !
Just to say i'm against this call.
As a Linux user and knowing how the ecosystem and mindset is at the moment in the global community i'd say we shouldn;t make such calls, instead we wish serif to loose money they can invest into making the already existing products better.

No! it's a No.
Serif should keep on following their own route and if one day it comes to pass by and join the Linux route then we all know.
Instead we can ask serif to partner with inkscape and gimp team so together they can agree on developing a file format that make those opensource and well known apps to read/write projects files made by one or another with ease.

Teaming on file format is much better and realistic at this moment building a total new line of products that may not survive in less or more than 5y

Thanks

Apparently you haven't read any of the many discussions here on the forum where Serif has made his utter rejection of any sharing of information about their proprietary format quite clear. Personally, I do not see the cooperation in the development of a format (universal for the whole ASuite + other applications) as realistic.
