I tweeted this question and your folks there said to ask it here, so: Has TechSmith given any consideration to porting SNAGIT to Linux? I know I'd sure purchases a license if it were supported there; I use SNAGIT Windows and Mac now and would LOVE to have it on Linux (like Slickedit, Understand C, Beyon d Compare, Komodo and a bunch more tools I use who've ported to Linux/Unix).

Hi all-

We just released a version of Snagit for Google Chrome, which means some of the functionality of Snagit is now available on machines running Linux and the Google Chrome browser. Currently, Snagit for Chrome is free and offers image capture and light editing of browser-based content. Check out the TechSmith blog for details on how to get it!

I realize this is not the same as having the full power of Snagit in a native Linux app...but hopefully it will help fill the void somewhat. And the good news is that we'll be continuing to develop Snagit for Google Chrome to become more feature-rich. We'd love to hear your feedback and feature requests in that area of the community.
