Lot of talk about using volunteer goat skills porting to Linux in this thread - I'd subscribe to a hardcore coders/IT specialists sub dedicated to solving this. My hunch would be that a port could be done cheaply and quickly just with volunteer goat skills and a bit of smart project management.

@Puttitout said that a port would require a feature freeze and 3-4 months of work, IIRC. I'm pretty sure that open sourcing it and letting the community handle it would have a working prototype in surprisingly little time. Survival issues tend to motivate projects like this.

A feature freeze isn't a big deal. And I bet it could be done in half the time

Y would they have to take Voat down while it's being ported to Linux?

I really think crowd sourcing labor is the best thing Voat can do to keep moving forward. Voat's open source, and if the site puts forth a goal to move to cheaper, free platforms, that goal will get done.
