Where is Linux version of Motocast!?

Just got my new Motorola RAZR xt910 and waiting for xoom2 in a few days...


I was quite excited when heard about Motocast feature. And I was really disappointed when I discovered that I have to have either Windows or Mac OS X to use it. Where is Linux support? It's really strange since all latest Motorola devices are using Linux themselves.

Unfortunately, we do not support linux.  Our developers are aware of the demand for it, but at this point there isn't anything in the works.

Why don't you try to run it in virtual mode using virtual box. It works fine for me.


You could try WINE - I have not tested this yet.

I had to click the "sign in to Like" button 5 times, each time entering more and more registration and personal data before crpola forum would let me upvote this post. Clearly they don't want to find out how many linux users that want to use moto products there are. They aren't even pretending to *consider* supporting us.

it's us supporting them! hopefully they'll understand that sometime and give us something back - like a working motocast programme for GNU/Linux.

That was such a bummer.


I have my  nexus one up for an update. My mom got a Razr, and I was very impressed with the phone. Looking at picking one up when v4 hits the road on the device.


Then found out the cools features that are windows only.


 


I guess until it shows up as an option, I will keep the nexus one, or move to another Nexus device. Pretty sad, considering how impressive the Razr was, even running Android 2.3.

One more vote for support here. My linux machines are increasing at home while the windows ones are dwindling. Zumocast/Motocast works very well on windows BTW. I'm sure it would be even better on LINUX.
