    I never said it didn't fail on launch. I just stated I had it running on it.

    I am not understand one:
    BlackBerry Blend for Windows is writen in Qt5 !!! Look to app dir, many Qt5*.dll files in it.
    Why not exist version for Linux, where Qt5 is native .. but in Windows non-native Qt5 is used?
    IMHO is not too complex compile Qt5 Blend for Linux .. right?
    Maybe BB wil make Blend for Linux in future .. with multiplatform Qt5..

    The problem with Linux is you really need to make three versions of the same application to account for the Debian, RHEL, and SuSE variants and package managers. You also have the issue of not all Linux distros supporting non GNU application extensions so there's the risk that any truly proprietary extensions BlackBerry uses in Link and Blend wouldn't be supported.

    Finally, in the desktop market the numbers for Linux are so small that it really isn't worth the hassle in terms of the time it would take.

    Market share seems like such an artificial argument to me. Lamborghini has way fewer customers than Ford, BlackBerry has fewer than Google, etc, but that doesn't stop them from being worth buying and supporting... same for Linux man. I want to use Blend but can't justify buying Apple or Microsoft or Google just for that.

    I installed Androidx86 on Virtualbox. Works perfectly. It takes ~1Go of space though.

    Good idea! Might have to try it on my Linux Mint box.
