I wanna use on FreeBSD. Not only Windows and Linux.
I’m sure the Linux port will compile for FreeBSD, since it’s based on Chromium. Chromium works on FreeBSD, right?
I’d imagine that the UI core will just be a web view running in an X window, and they have no reason to use Linux specific system calls since it’s already intended to be portable. So X and maybe GTK are the only dependencies I can see Atom having in its “Linux” version.
