    Hello Teo,

    Thank you for your input. Well, sure, Linux is a really good operating system and has a lot of benefits against other systems like Windows or macOS. 

    Sadly, we haven't any plans for Linux products on our roadmap. As soon as this will change, we'll inform our userbase via our website and other channels.

    Again, thank you for reaching out to us.

    VPN's are well supported by linux using standard VPN systems. (using Linux  NetworkManager)
    This is what I have on my system right now!

    Layered Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) - also used by Fortigate
    Cisco AnyConnect (OpenConnect)
    Juniper Network Connect (OpenConnect)
    Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect (openConnect)
    Pulse Connect Secure (OpenConnect)
    Point-to-Point Tunnelling Protocol (PPTP)
    Cisco Compatible VPN (vpnc)

    So if your VPN is using a known protocol, then Linux machines should be able to use it just fine.
    We just need more information, so we can connect to your VPN, instead of trying to hide all that info in a 'simple executible'.  IE: a more advance guide.

    Linux users are typically much more capable users than the average, which is why they use linux!
