I'm not aware of any decision to, or not to, change Linux support.

I apologize for not making my initial posting more clear.  I run both Windows and Linux systems with both having certain PGP secured files.  My previous Linux system had PGP but unhappily a HD failure wiped out the system so I lost Linux PGP.  Linux PGP is hard to find now that Symantec bought Network Associates.  The question is, will Symantec now offer Linux PGP as a stand alone rather than an integrated part of a large enterprise system that I neither need or want?

Linux support is included with the PGP Command Line product.   Unfortunately, it is not priced for personal use, and has not been since well before Symantec became the owner.  I am not aware of any consideration of changing this.

GPG is a free an open-source alternative which is still compatible with the OpenPGP standard.  It will work fine for a single user or small home office environment. PGP Command Line is more for Enterprise.
