I’ve seen Twitch streamers mentioning that your Charts app is an electron (packaged Chrome) application. That’s great, because it is rather portable.
What are the reasons why you do not just build it for Linux as well?
I believe you use another software “Simlink” to get position data from the sim to that app (and/or to the cloud?).
Making cross-platform X-Plane plugins is rather trivial (see for example FlyWithLua/cmake.yml at master · X-Friese/FlyWithLua · GitHub) and since you are already supporting MacOS your devs know how to build “fat” plugins already!
What is holding you back to bring your Moving Map solution to X-Plane on Linux?
I am currently on the “FMS Yearly” plan. Having all charts in one place is enticing. But having them as a moving map would be a clear reason to make the switch to “Ultimate”.
How are you guys measuring how many Linux customers there are? I do sometimes use X-Plane on Linux, but it’s rare because of no simlink. I can’t really think of any way you would know if I was using Linux, though… especially if I’m not using anything Navigraph related on there.
We review Linux customer numbers in the wider mainstream operating system space. At this stage we don’t feel the likely Linux subscription numbers justify the support and development investment. We note your desire for this support and will continue to consider it as an option for the future.
