JavaFX 2.0 is Cross Platform!
By javafx4you on Jan 23, 2012
When we released the JavaFX 2.0 Beta at the end of May, there was an uproar from the Mac and Linux communities complaining that the software was only available on Windows. Developers were very vocal about the fact they would not touch JavaFX until this was remediated. Today, the JavaFX Team is very pleased to announce the availability of the JavaFX 2.1 Developer Preview for Linux, which you can download here.
The JavaFX Developer Preview for Linux has currently been tested against Ubuntu 10.04 / JDK 7u2 but is expected to be supported on other Linux distributions the Oracle Java SE implementation is available on when JavaFX for Linux reaches General Availability.
The quick summary is that it's time for you to code, test, and file bugs and feature requests. We are looking forward to your input to make JavaFX for Linux a rock-solid implementation, as we cannot possibly replicate software and hardware environments that are specific to you.
