"Few months back, we also reported that Unity3D Linux support is
not a priority and that the chances are bleak. Now finally, the
situation has been cleared in a conversation between Richard Cuddy
and Graham (from Unity3D) that happened last December.
"'Firstly, let me say thank you for all your hard work and in
releasing this development kit the way you have. The free indie
license coupled with the sheer power of the platform in either it?s
variations is amazing and we?re all thankful for that, I believe.
However, I just want to try to get something official from you
regarding plans for porting the player to Linux (though the editor
would be nice, I doubt it?s likely any time soon) . On the Unity
Technologies Blog you guys had a successful build of core
functionality of the Unity Web Player running in a browser on an
Ubuntu machine. That was back in March, 2011. That was exciting for
a few people who read the blog, I?m sure.'"
