There is no explanation as to why my question is closed. I'd like it reopened as it seems to be on topic.
It's asking about the support of native Linux terminals.
Well, technically, there is an explanation:
This question does not appear to be about Unix or Linux within the scope defined in the help center.
Your first version (before your edit) was borderline, in my opinion, but was validly closed. The edit was an improvement; when I encountered it in the Reopen review queue, however, I voted to keep closed. Looking back on it, I probably should have gone the other way.
A listing of the terminals and fonts in Linux that support ligatures seems a worthwhile enough resource to have here.
