[Michael Gissing] "My point is that lots of pros are using a form of Linux anyway with OSX."

A form of it, yes, but it's different.

[Michael Gissing] "There is already a lot of open source software that runs under OSX so there should be little effort in porting the OSX versions to Linux."

I think you are drastically understating the 'effort' part of the equation.

Apple has been tooling down their open source initiatives as pointed out by Andrew Richards when he linked to this: http://meta.ath0.com/2012/02/05/apples-great-gpl-purge/

Not saying a Linux port wouldn't be great, it might be, but it's a really big effort and wouldn't make a whole lot of business sense at this point for avid/adobe.

Does fairlight run on Linux? Why not?
