This article is about an operating system. For the source port, see Linux Doom.

Doom was first ported to Linux in 1994 by Dave Taylor of id Software. The last Linux Doom binaries were provided by id on October 13, 1996 through the company's FTP server.

It was this version whose source code was later released (the DOS version could not be released due to copyright issues concerning the sound library). Originally, the code was distributed under the Doom Source License, but it was later reissued under the GNU General Public License.

Doom 3 also received an in-house Linux port by programmer Timothee Besset, released on October 1, 2004.

In addition, the original DOS version can be run using DOSBox as well as Doom95 or Doom Classic/Unity via Wine.
