Snagit for Linux

Is it time for TechSmith to acknowledge the growing Linux desktop community and port Snagit to Linux? Your competition is sorely lacking in the easy-to-use, polished product department. Editing (Shutter is the best among them) lacks the best Snagit features. I'm telling you, TechSmith is leaving $$ on the table here.

I’ve known about snagit for a long time. I’ve seen it used by many co workers for creating documentation. I’ve always just used windows snip for doing what I need. I’m finally in a spot where I’m interested in buying Snagit for my windows work flow. I also use another machine (not a vm) running Linux. I’d like to have the Snagit tool for linux. I’d be willing to pay the 50 dollar price tag for both editions. Although because of the lack of linux support, I’m not likely to even buy the existing windows edition of Snagit. I really don’t like to spend my money with companies that don’t support the linux community. I see there is a Mac edition so I don’t see why not support Linux users. I’d put money in for a beta even. So you guys are leaving 100 dollars plus annual renewal fees from at least me as a user on the table. Is there a chance we can see a linux edition?

I have been personally buying SnagIt since Version 5.  It's easily the best screen shot application I've ever seen.  I have found myself using Linux more and more and agree that we really need a Linux port, please!

I own two licenses for Snagit personally, and I have bought licenses for work.  I would gladly pay again for a Linux version.  Just saying...

Bump!
I also use Linux and have moved from my Mac to a hairy-chested desktop computer running Linux. Whenever using Linux as a VM on my mac, Snagit worked fine. Not great, just fine.
But going without Snagit while running a Linux VM on a Linux host is terrible.
Come on. There can't be that much difference between the Mac version and a Linux version.

Like many others, the recent hardware changes to Macbooks has me migrating back to Linux as my primary engineering machine.  I came here to grab snagit for linux.  I'm disappointed there isn't a port.  This tool will be sorely missed.  =(

+1 for long overdue Linux support. 
Linux desktop doesn't have many alternatives that are of the same quality as Snagit (even though the 2018 version froze regularly on Windows 10 when starting a new capture). 
Linux desktop has become a lot more common nowadays, and I feel it should not be left behind when building an application. It would be a missed chance for extra revenue =D

I would pay the same price for a smooth Linux version of Snagit and Camtasia.
