I don't blame any software vendor for not porting to Linux, but the 
problem is self-inflicted by the Linux distributions refusing to 
standardize the available libraries and APIs so binary packages can work 
across them.

Probably the best we are going to see now will be javascript-framework 
applications that run portably inside browsers.
