Power BI Desktop for macOS and/or Linux

Power BI Desktop is clearly not a native Windows application and made with web technologies (Electron I think). Therefore you might that porting it to macOS and/or Linux isn't hard to do.


Does anybody now if this is something Microsoft is planning to do?

There is no linux version of Power BI Desktop. The only "work around" would be to use a windows virtual machine either on a local VM or using one of the cloud providers.

There is an Idea out there but it is Not Planned.
