I think it is a great idea, too.  I do use linux extensively, 
and would very much like to have an analog of WinAos 
for linux.  Felix, the author of WinAos, told me he didn't 
see any obstacles for this to become reality other than 
requiring a month of coding, and since he is writing his 
thesis right now, that is not an option.  There are tools, 
Wine and Winelib, that may allow for a port of WinAos 
to linux, but I'm not sure if this is the best approach.
