Linux desktop client for Skype for Business
Ignore the Category.
Make the desktop client available for Linux.
All of my companies systems are Linux which precludes us from using SfB as far as I am aware
We have Linux user in or community which is the reason why we cannot use Skype for Business. Until this will be solve we will stick to appear.in

The absence of linux support for Skype-for-business is the only reason I'm unable to use linux in our business-environment
It's a real pain that you don't support Linux. I was trying to join a meeting with colleagues from home, but I wasn't able to open the Skype-for-business-links they had sent me (no, the .msi-download option isn't helping at all, as other users pointed out before). This is really annoying. So many applications offer Linux support that it seems like standard nowadays. So why is Skype not able to do this?

Where is the linux support? Its about time to fiks this now, and give us a linux client.

Funny to say, Microsoft uses TONS of Linux servers. Starting with several of their exposed web servers. Easy to dig and catch which ones are Linux. But they deny adapting to Linux pretending their big shXt plaster of Windoze Zerver does something useful. It's not us who should ask Microsoft to give us a client like begging for the crumbles that fall from the table. It should be US, by not using their **** until we bring down their company. Unfortunately they will keep coding cheap bad code with lots of clicky-clicky and fancy colours until the last stupid dies away from the face of earth. They live off stupid people.
yes its very much needed
Please add Linux support for the business client.

Your cloud product Office 365 includes Skype for Business.
As a cloud company you cannot expect to force a customers client OS .
If there's no web client for Skype for Business available, please make sure to offer a working client for common Linux platforms, as you did it for your standard Skype client.
Why are they ignoring Linux all the Time ? **** **** ****.
Hey Microsoft: You are using Linux for your ******* Azur platform but you DO NOT want to provide Skype for busines for Linux even no Office !
I'm ****** of already. Arrogant idiots!
******* Skype for Business. ******** software !
Its pity that Microsoft even do not allow Linux users to join skype meetings via web browser, whereas windows users can do so without installing desktop skype for business client.
Anyway, skype is dead, Microsoft is developing teams that says install on any platform, but Linux is not supported list, what a joke!

2+ years of "Please?" ... not a hint of desire on Microsoft's part to comply.
"Skype for business" has absolutely nothing to do with "Skype".
M$ just renamed Lync as "Skype for business".
Lync does not work in linux (nor in anywhere else).
Please let Lync die, just bin the whole code and start from scratch with actual Skype.

At least make it web accessible, not a .msi installation!!!
Skype for business not really for business, funny Microsoft way.

Please do not focus on office men. You can imagine how many R&D using Linux and Windows is only used when Office is needed.
I understand creating a standalone App in different platform is a huge task, perhaps you can deliver a web-based SfB in first place?
It's nice not having this on my linux machine...please don't fix this so i don't have to pollute my system with your software.
Please do it! Just do it!
