We have a working crossbuild to Linux (though it may need to be upgraded 
again given recent software improvements).  Porting the software 
outright to Linux is like trying to do needlepoint on a roller-coaster 
-- because the software is still under heavy development, the port would 
need to be constantly upgraded (and thus would require dedicated staff 
to maintain).  Once the software stabilizes (for example, once version 
1.0 is released), it may make sense to do this -- especially if there's 
interest for specific applications.  Mostly, we either need more 
volunteers or the funding to support more dedicated staff to undertake 
something like that.
