Linux desktop client for Skype for Business
Ignore the Category.
Make the desktop client available for Linux.
Add linux client! Thx
It is a known fact that Linux is gaining market among software developers (see ) as well as in other industries. At many companies (including the one I'm working at) Linux is the dominant OS among the employees.
If Microsoft is serious about competing in the business segment (for instance with solutions like Office 365 E3), excluding Linux simply is not an option.
Right now, Skype for Business is the *only* day-to-day O365-technology that requires Windows, either on a separate machine or in a virtual machine on a Linux desktop (of which neither is an acceptable solution).
Full Linux support needs to be fixed A.S.A.P.
It is about time. Right now. Or, rather, more like five years ago... Please!
Add Linux client.
Only 4275 votes so far? that's sad
As majority of development people I worked on Linux and it is a pain to reboot for each meeting.

Does Microsoft even read this? Would have been nice but we moved to Slack instead.

Though the Sipe team are doing a great job, is not exactly the best experience, still needed.
Ubuntu linux client is required. Most of the developers uses Ubuntu linux on their machine.
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!
