[FEATURE REQUEST] Linux Metatester agent

Rodrigo F  

Hi there MetaTrader developers,

I really understand how difficult would be porting the whole MT terminal into a Linux-compatible design.

However, on the other hand, I think that it is long past the time of a Linux MetaTester agent.

So, can you please consider a Linux version for MetaTester?


- RF.


P.S.: If you are also interested in this feature, please add your reply to the thread, so MetaTrader people can gauge the interest in this feature.


IMHO MetaQuotes Software Corp should be interested in creating a Linux version too.

Linux OS share is slowly but stably growing (though salesmen are not too much interested in selling new PCs without Windows - their additional profit :(  ).

But with every new problem of Windows 10 updating, viruses (which are almost a part of Windows system) and the end of system support for Windows 7 and 8, Linux share will be greater.

So, MetaQuotes developers, do something not too lose Linux-based traders, who always can choose some alternative to MT4/MT5 broker .

I would like this feature 


    I am really looking forward to this, if MetaQuotes is reading this, do implement an easy-install type linux version. If it can be more of a standalone application that doesn't need special dependency installations then it would be a lot easier to deploy across many systems. I greatly appreciate the Meta Tester application, Thanks!
