My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.
We’re pleased to confirm the Teams client for Linux will be available in preview by the end of this calendar year, enabling people who use Linux client at work or in educational institutions to collaborate with others on Teams. Users will be able to install native Linux packages in .deb and .rpm formats.
I want in on this!
Please add me to the list

Can I be added to the list too. I have to integrate researchers especially astrophysicists who will not give up Linux, with an organization 2/3rds Windows/O365 and Macs so cross platform is a key discriminator. A plus one for snaps/flatpacks where logical is nice --- noting there is some loss of functionality in Slack if you you the snap version since it is sandboxed. As an aside, we need a native OneDrive to make this seemless. We are using Azure too.

I would REALLY like to get a preview on that, too. If there is a list I would appreciate to be enlisted.
Please add me to the list as well for the preview. Thanks
Now that it's installable on buster, I would very much like to added to the list for preview/insiders.

@Alex, can I suggest looking at building a snap package too. MS already distributes a number of tools in this format ( e.g. VS Code, Azure storage manager ) so the knowledge exists in the organisation. This could give access to users who don't run systems which use deb or rpm.
Also thank you for driving this forward, I know we aren't a huge group but we are often the technical people keeping things working for everyone in or organisations and can be curmudgeons at times :)
Please sign me up to the list.
Please add me to the list, thank you very much.

I would also love to test the Insiders App.
Please add me to the list.
I'm interesting in testing, but can not launch insider application.
Now I'm using non official teams for linux every day.
Brian H commented
