100% agree. I use Windows for the few applications that necessitate it, but I spend 90% of my time in Linux, and the NZXT Kraken x62 is constantly running too loud with no real way of changing it without setting a constant fan speed (aka suicide when the threadripper gets cranking). Seeing - from the latest software - that you need a complete rewrite anyway, you might as well do it with cross-platform in mind. Or at least publish the API and let the linux community do it for you. It is hardly an unpopular request.

Yup. Start again. With cross-platform in mind this time, and seriously reconsider your PR tactics. The shameless use of "completed" as a metaphor for "nope" is bringing your reputation down to rock bottom. I love NZXT cooling, it's great, but the software to actually have any control over it is nearly unusable on Windows (why change software to *reduce* UX? Seriously?) and completely absent in Linux (but sure, I LOVE having one of the only available coolers for my threadripper 1950x running far too loud when on my work OS).
