Unfortunately, the gentlemen that made the rules made it so you need reputation to comment and ask not to edit an answer to reply to the author, so I have to ask a separate question.
I tried to find if you can run Minecraft: Bedrock Edition betas in GNU and found this.
The accepted answer was:
Tl;dr: No, you can't.
Here's the real answer:
You have two issues:
- Minecraft Java Edition can be downloaded for Linux. After you pay for the game, of course. Minecraft Bedrock Edition (a.k.a. Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition) won't work on Ubuntu (or any other Linux distro, for that matter). It is distributed via the Microsoft/Xbox store. Not a downloadable
.exe. So you can't download that version for Ubuntu. Some people (Reddit link) have gotten it working on Linux. Here is another one. So it is technically possible, just hard.
- It isn't free. Neither Minecraft: Java Edition nor Minecraft: Bedrock Edition are free (on Windows, Mac, or Linux). So you have to pay.
If you want an easy way, I'd just create a Windows 10 VM using VirtualBox, or just play Minecraft: Java Edition.
I don't understand this answer. What do you have to pay for? Neither Bedrock release nor Bedrock betas are free, and I don't think any of them is distributed as .exe, but release is paid, and betas are foc. Does that mean that you have to pay more for release?
