Which Linux would you like the programme ported too?

I know that sounds flippant but Vectorworks is a very graphical programme so it's not enough to say port to linux you would have to also commit to a particular Windowing system as well.

After all Linux isn't an OS as we know it. It's more the kernal that any one of handful of OS can be complied from.

I know that, however all linux graphics programs are ported on most linux distributions. However if I should name one, then make it Mandriva.

Many software developers use the freedom involved in using GNU/Linux as an excuse for not making ports. If you use a common tool kit such as GTK+ and release a list of dependencies that your software requires all distro of linux will be capable off running it. I personally would really like to see a good linux architectural CAD emerge soon so that i don't have to use Windows or Mac OS when i head off to uni and there is growing interest on many major CAD forums.
