[quote="Don Desfosse 1035677"]My strong suggestion to you is that since there is currently a software team developing a cross-platform client, you make sure they are aware of the fact that you are a Linux user hoping that their client will support Linux. Whining about the fact that you can't use something that was designed for the majority of VATSIM's users does not make you stand out in the community in a good way.[/quote]
The team of the cross-platform client has already been informed by me at the very beginning of the project of that Linux 64-bit support is badly needed. They promised to consider it.
What Gabor stated nevertheless is fundamentally true.
At present, VATSIM embarrassingly lacks support of a Linux 64-bit client utterly.
It is a catch-22 situation:
Only few support the Linux community precisely because its "just" a small community.
On the other hand, there will not change many to Linux as its support is insufficient.
So I appreciate the efforts made by the cross-platform team so far, especially for not jumping on the oneway train of FSX but for considering the VATSIM community as a whole.
In conclusion, me and many others will patiently wait for the release of the cross-platform client and eventually welcome VATSIM to the 21st century.
