Hard to say it, buy the target which can be benefit for linux distro user is ChromeOS:

https://chromeos.dev/en

270 Milion Active Android users on ChromeOS, tablets, and foldables[1]
50Milion Students and educators using Chromebooks worldwide[2]
 

I wouldn't, the hardware would be an issue.

Sure, there are great Chromebooks but the majority isn't geared towards performance, but optimisation instead.

But let's say they'd work on a version for Chromebooks, wouldn't it just be an Android version instead?

Sure, but that wouldn't be "targeted" at Chromebooks, then. Also, most Chromebooks wouldn't be able to handle AP. Hardware limitation is real.

I mean, even the new so called "Gaming Chromebooks" are meant for cloud gaming. I don't really see a reason for anyone to invest in creating a software like AP or PS aimed at these devices.

@emko, sadly I’m not running Linux at the moment. I was really eager to try this out T-T

But hopefully someone experimented like @Snapseed or @1stn00b will be able to do so :)

I tried with PlayOnLinux and Crossover 22 (January 2023).

While CrossOver 22 (Wine 7.7) couldn't pop-up the install menu, PlayOnLinux with 6.17 64-bit Wine could start up the install menu, but I couldn't go further cause it appeared the warning that I don't have a supported Windows version. Let's see if others progressed further. On both I set up Win10 environment

Are there any new? I am going to change to linux later this year. My next PC will be a System76 Thelio desktop... an absolute beast for creative work - I would love to use Affinity software with it.. Best would be nativly... .-P

 

Affinity would be a perfect fit for Linux - there are so many overlaps of characteristics of the userbase - I think a person who uses Affinity is keen to change to Linux aswell.

Serif still has no plans to support Linux, from the last information they posted.

There are other Linux threads here where users are describing their experiences and approaches to getting the Windows version to work on Linux.

Yep. Process of getting development, event if the user base reached more than 1 million and active Linux machine, is to complicated ( stack related on Windows and Mac System dependency )

If you have any developer skills you can use this library and start creating own AI based graphics editor
