Is there ever any chance of a construct2 Linux port?

Just curious. I have no idea what C2 is written in, but I prefer to work out of linux when possible and it would be great if I could have native access on some of my other workstations.

Virtualbox really isn't very performant for me, and I've never tried in wine.

C2 uses a lot of non transferable code that would make it really tricky to port, as that would imply redoing a lot of things from scratch, so very unlikely. (Source: other posts on the subject)

bawls. Literally the only 2d complete engine I know of that can be run in dev mode in linux is impactjs, all others seem to require winblows :(

I know it is far from being complete, but you could take a look at gamedevelop, last time I checked, it was also availiable on linux.

and leave C2? Never! (well, maybe some day). I'd probably go back to impact if I really had to leave windows.

C2 is good enough to get me to keep a copy of windows active. I just hate not having a real CLI in windows land. (cygwin is not a valid option, gross), and really miss native sftp/ssh support.
