The response below seems to be the standard answer to the "are you gonna port to
Linux" question. So, see these addresses?

In your own words - as many as you bloody want - please tell Macromedia why they
should port these products to Linux. Also mention that Dreamweaver UltraDev
should add in support for Perl, PHP and Python.
Feel free to email the makers of any other products you'd like to see on Linux.
Proactive - it's the only way.
Oh, and please don't throw Composer and Gimp in my face. Macromedia (et al)
products aren't perfect (I rarely use them, but when I do, they save a lot of
hassle), and Gimp and Composer (and vi and even pico) serve their purpose. But
these products are in a different league altogether...
