So happy to share that this is off the backlog and we are actively working on it!
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.

Actually we gave our rooms O365 Business Essential Licenses... so they can now login to teams...Jens Engelmann commented
I would suggest a separate account for each room. We got several meeting rooms and initialize video meetings from meeting room to meeting room - loging in with your own credentials is kind of unpleasant. You can strip down the functionality if you want - we just need to initialize (video) calls from room to room.
Clippy is flattered by all the attention but plans to continue his retirement.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
This request is still on the backlog.
