Totally off-topic, but I'd be curious to know why.  I understand that if
this thing is some client that needs to be installed on thousands of
desktops, then Linux is not an option.  But if you write back and say
that this is for some server, then I'd really like to know the details.
Linux servers seem commonplace, and not normaly a laughing matter.

(I work in a division whose profits come solely from Linux server sales,
and so I have a vested interest in finding out the answer...)
