I wish you luck in getting support!

Luck won't help, but community involvement would. Likewise, if anyone
needs any software that is not available for Linux, then write to the
manufacturer and request it. Then let me know, and I will write to the
manufacturer as well.

I admire your zeal but I'm curious as to how many responses you get from
manufacturers even acknowledging your mail. Dassault Systèmes
(Solidworks) was one such company that I've written an email to (many
moons ago) regarding a linux port with no response whatsoever.

I do this kind of thing often. No idea how well it works.

However, on the Solidworks front - one of my buddies happens to be a VP of
sales there. I called him this evening and had a chat. I explained to him
that it might be beneficial for them to introduce a Linux version for those
people not on Windows.

He said he'd pass it by the board, but no promises.

Worth a shot. :)
