Please release a version of notepad ++ on linux machines. Iam working on linux at home and use notepad ++ at work on windows machines. Now I can’t use it on linux without wine…

That would require re-writing the application from scratch, because native linux uses a completely different set of UI libraries and a completely different set of methods of interacting between processes. Notepad++ is, at its core, a Windows (win32 api) application, and as such, cannot easily translate to other environments.
(There are applications out there that don’t require a complete re-write to be portable across platforms, but they require lots of planning, and a different design philosophy from the outset.)
It would be possible to write an application inspired by Notepad++ using linux-style coding, but by its very nature, it wouldn’t be Notepad++.
