This time I wanted to add that there are 3 (that I know of) "universal package" formats for Linux that would greatly reduce the cost of development and testing: Flatpak, AppImage, and Snap.
I am an avid Linux user and would love to have a lightweight Linux client available for Pandora, and am willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement and work on the development for a relatively modest fee, or do it for free (!) if permitted to make the code "open-source" so I could show it off as part of my portfolio. I have a little experience as a freelance professional developer, mostly in Python and Bash with a pinch of SQL, and you can check out my work at https://github.com/a-v-e-s
A big part of why I want this so much, aside from loving Pandora, is to use it on a Linux phone or tablet like I do on my Android device. I know Pandora is a big business with a very large user base, but the Linux user base is relatively tiny so there would be many fewer possibilities for bug reports, and if it was an open-source project done for free people would have little reason to complain. Please, if you could, at least show this to a developer with some authority before writing it off. I know many developers are Linux fans like myself 🙂
