Alas, I have neither the resources nor the experience as a unix
programmer to be able to take on this port, even though there's a
reasonable demand for it. We're watching the development of porting
"layer" libraries, such as WINE, though - if it gets to the point where
any of those will allow us to do an effective recompile of our code
without having to change too much, then we'll certainly give serious
consideration to a linux version.
