    I frankly always assumed Linux isn't a viable market. People tend to want things for free... What do you think?

    i guess
    i purchased it before for windows
    loved it
    moved away from windows and itunes
    still have a lot of music
    the reason i was asking was i would be interested in buying it if it
    worked at least as good as the windows version
    i understand you need to make money
    linux isn't just people looking for free stuff
    i truly like your product, is why i asked
    linux is stable, works great, and doesn't cause me as much issues as
    windows did 

    thx :)

    Don't get me wrong—I like Linux a lot and large parts of beaTunes would run on it out of the box, but so far I have never seen enough interest to justify making the effort of porting beaTunes' native parts. Perhaps that changes in the future—who knows!?
