Affinity Designer for Linux please?

Recommended Posts

I'm enjoying Affinity Designer, but one problem, every other productive tool I use works on Linux except for Affinity Designer.

So I can't drop Windows and migrate fully to Linux.

Are there any Linux fans at Affinity? Maybe it's time for Affinity to pioneer into commercial Linux creative software...

This is the forum for Affinity Photo. But yes, do a search for Linux. There are a few Linux fans.

I really don't understand why Affinity would refuse to support Linux. There is obviously a large number of people who want to use it including me. In fact, I think it will make or break Adobe and Affinity. First, one to the race wins. There has been a huge push for quality professional tools on the Linux platform. I am primarily an Illustrator/Photoshop user but If Affinity released on Linux I would abandon Adobe for Affinity in a heartbeat. I am sure others feel the same way. I have been working professionally as a graphic designer for the advertising industry for around 8 years. Software like Inkscape and PK1 are not professional quality products. Linux users need tools like Affinity designer. Affinity has taken the market by storm. I see them slowly but surely outdoing adobe at every turn. With their Publisher Application addition to their tool set up and coming, if they were to release on Linux they could consume the entire Linux user base and block adobe out of the market but only if they were first to market. There are people asking for these products and Affinity should listen to them, not just their current market. They should be looking to new markets to expand into. It's just a shame they don't see how their is a major shift to Linux happening under their noses...
