I'm glad to see people making headway with this, currently with Steam allowing good support for linux the only reason I even use Windows still is Launchbox. Would really like to ditch the telemetry machine eventually.

@Crossfader The problem with just porting the Android version is you still would need a windows install to setup the data for it, though I suppose if someone were able to get the performance worked out in linux it would provide that.

I'm not going to add much to this thread other than I really would pay another license juste for a Linux port of Launchbox/Bigbox. I really like it, and now that my Windows emulation machine is dead (SSD crashed) I was thinking about installing Linux instead because Windows is getting worse and worse as time goes by and given how hostile Microsoft is being I don't see this improving at all.

On the other side, Linux has made big improvements and while it's far from perfect, it's made lots of progress.

Being a dev myself I understand how big of a rewrite would be considering the tech used to build Launchbox to begin with, so all I can do is add my voice to the crowd who would like a Linux version of launchbox.
