How much interest in AFDKO for other platforms?
We have made AFDKO (Adobe Font Development Kit for OpenType) available for Mac OS X and Windows, but we also realize that these are not the only OSes that font developers prefer to use. In an effort to make AFDKO more appealing to more font developers, and more broadly available, we'd like to gauge the interest in supporting additional OSes, particularly Linux and other Unix-like OSes (mainly because AFDKO tools are, for the most part, batch-and command-line driven).
All of the AFDKO tools that need to be compiled have been written in ANSI C, but setting up the environments and project files requires some amount of effort, thus our desire to gauge interest in such an effort before making an investment that is measured in time and resources.
If you, as a font developer, prefer to use an OS other than Mac OS X or Windows as your primary development environment, please post a comment, being sure to indicate the details of the OS on which you'd like AFDKO tools to run.
