Atom only on Mac?



Based on the description of the project I was expecting for Atom to be quite cross-platform. When I follow the invite from my e-mail I see that the only download is for Mac.

Is this the current status of the project, of is there a mistake in identifying my platform ?


Please read the FAQ on

These clearly states that

At the moment Atom only runs on OS X (10.8 or later). Windows and Linux releases are on the roadmap


Sorry, I didn’t look there, obviously . Thank you for your time!


I have to give you kudos as this is the politest reply to this issue I’ve seen.

I too am patiently waiting for Atom to be released to other platforms.
