[OT] Rev on Linux PPC - Would you use it?

I would like to deploy my apps for PPC Linux although I will continue 
to use OS X as my primary development platform.

I don't know if it would be easier for RunRev to resume making the 
distribution engine for PPC Linux even if they don't make an IDE for 
it. Obviously it would be best to have everything for every platform 
but that would at least let me deploy for PPC Linux.

Revolution offers the linux community exactly what it needs but doesn't 
have...a powerful yet easy to use programming environment. If I was a 
Linux freak I'd be all over Revolution.

Of course having to actually buy software goes against the grain of 
most of the linux users I know. I'd be curious to know how well any of 
the Rev apps you folks have been selling are actually getting money 
from linux users. I wrote an electronic phone book for my previous 
company which the Mac and Windows community loved, but the linux users 
looked down on it because it was a "GUI app" and they "already had 
finger" (and that app was even free).
