Certainly! Many developers who are passionate about .NET and use Linux as their operating system are eagerly awaiting official .NET MAUI support for Linux. They hope that this support will be available in the near future, allowing them to create cross-platform apps seamlessly.

Currently, developers face limitations in creating .NET MAUI apps for the Linux platform. Can we expect this support in the near future.

    Probably not, unless Linux adds support for hosting Android apps. Unlike MacOs and IOS, the GUI libraries are different for Android and Linux.

    Linux support is more likely to come via cross platform Hybrid Blazor apps. This just requires the hosting shell be ported to Linux. The main requirement would be porting WebView2 to Linux.
