Friendly reminder that if a product you want doesn’t support Linux, send them an email!


I do this often when shopping for a new product I really want: if Linux support isn't listed and research says it doesn't work I'll send an email and usually I get good responses back! It's a great way to show demand is there, and gives you better insight into which companies you want to support with your money.

Recent example: I really wanted an Elgato Streamdeck but Linux is a no go. Found a competitor called Loupedeck and sent them an email, and they let me know they've gotten a lot of Linux requests recently so they sent it over to their Software Director… enough people asking puts Linux support on the map!
