Linux supported equally
Linux is very popular among privacy concerned users, who make up a large chunk of Proton's userbase. However, Proton fails to provide any solid Linux apps and frequently leaves them unmaintained or released years after the initial product launch. Proton should make Linux a first-class platform, with proper support from day one.

I am a visionary subscriber but frankly I don't know how much longer I'm going to keep paying if they keep ignoring Linux.
I don't understand why Linux support is even a question for a supposedly privacy focused open-source company. Any time they make a desktop app they should plan for Windows, Linux, and MacOS support from the start. Just like planning for Android and iOS on mobile. We shouldn't have to beg for it.
Microsoft will probably move Windows to the "rent model" like Office 365, meaning that we will have to pay a monthly fee to use it and get the updates.
If this happens, I guess more and more people will move to Linux.
Good quality application (with cli for pros and nice gui for end users) would be a must for new users and beginners on Linux.

There are apps for every other platform but until there are more Linux applications, I can't use Proton as my main email, calendar and cloud storage providers.
Dear Proton, In itself, I experience my Mac as very user-friendly. However, because I read that Apple also resells user data, I am going to switch to Linux Ubuntu anyway.
Unlike a year ago, I know several people in my area who use a android-privacy phone with GrapheneOS or e/OS/. By which I mean to say; The market-segment of users with a need for privacy certainly seems to be growing. And that will certainly also apply to the desktop market. In my opinion, Proton Drive, and also a synchronized note app for Linux, would be a good move.
Kind regards, Marco
