Microsoft's blog post announcing availability notes that "The Microsoft Teams client is the first Office app that is coming to Linux desktops." Microsoft has strongly hinted that OneDrive may be coming to Linux based on customer demand. I asked officials whether the core Office apps like Word, Excel and PowerPoint also are coming to Linux but didn't get a response. A number of customers have asked Microsoft to make Office 365 available on Linux.
Update: A Microsoft spokesperson said the company has "nothing further to share" about which of its Office apps also will be coming to Linux.
Microsoft already offers Teams for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and the Web. Microsoft group-chat rival Slack already has a Linux client.
Some Microsoft customers have been working with the Teams client for Linux in private preview "over the past few months," officials said.
