Premiere Pro and Linux

Basic question here: Is it possible to get Adobe Premiere Pro to run on Linux? I am considering switching over from the Mac platform for various reasons, one of which is what will become of the Mac Pro (as we know it) down the road. I am a bit reluctant to switch over to Windows.

Linux a no go for Adobe. I really wouldn't worry too much about the MacPro. I doubt it will be killed anytime soon.
While you could argue that they killed FCP, well they didn't really, the MacPro is pretty much Apple's only high end machine and I can't imagine them killing it now. And by the time they do, you might be editing on an iPad :-)
We use both MacPro and PCs and while I have come to prefer OSX for its simplicity, I would have no problem trusting either one for a long haul project.
