I've been reading a bunch of news about how all these graphics companies are porting their software to Linux. Naturally, it makes me wonder if NewTek will be doing the same. I've seen a few posts from last year saying NewTek was porting the Screamernet LW files to Linux. Has this happened yet? If not, ETA?

Most likely we'll see it with 8.0, maybe before.

I'm sure there are quite a few people waiting for this to happen. LW is about the only thing keeping me on Windows. I guess the real problem that will appear will be related to depencies - hopefully NT will ensure that any port that does arrive (ScreamerNet node included) with working on all current distributions (SuSE, Redhat, Mandrake, etc.).

I won't hold my breath for a port, but will be very happy to see one, especially if they integrate it into their DUO program (assuming that Rainbow have linux drivers for their dongles).
