Unfortunatly, this response from Adobe is actually translated
as "NO" but we will put another tick on the list to ignore. Unfortunatly,
Frame and then later Adobe ran surveys and discovered that a number
of their customers wanted a port but that they wanted it to be
very inexpensive and so it wasn't considered worth the port.

The other issue was the number of Linux variations which unfortunatly
multiply the support issues. It is already a problem with their
Unix ports which are only 30% of their market COMBINED.

My contacts at Frame have consistently stated that they have
NO plans for a port at this time. On the other hand, this may
be able to change in the future. Perhaps a company such as
Caldera can go in and build the business case.
