No VA for Linux - terrible start to 2006 for me that. Which widget set are they now using? If it's wxWidgets, why not ask some enterprising Linux bod to port it over? I would guess the support required for Linux would be *masses* less than is required for Windows or Mac.

Oh well. Pity my emails to VA asking for help on getting VA5K running on a Linux box went unanswered (looks like a DirectX issue) nor can I get my copy of VA-RPC to run on a Linux box which I know one PC distributor (at least) was interested in [both under WINE of course!]. Well, that's one way not to make some money. Looks like VA is taking a leaf from ROS Ltd's books ;-p
