I have been able to get v3.02 working for Ubuntu Linux using WINE (writing code, compiling, setting up NXT/Tetrix motor controllers). However, I am wondering if, under WINE, there is a USB compatibility layer. I'd try it myself, but I don't have a brick with me that I'd take the risk of bricking because of a faulty re-flash caused by WINE incompatibility.
I also agree that native support would be nice, especially since the FIRST Field Control System has a Linux version; all we'd need is a Linux version of LabView and a Linux version of RobotC. Still, I doubt it will happen since the developers have already stated that Linux/Mac are out of the question, since it would lower the quality of the Windows version. Not to insult or any thing, with the recent bugs who'd notice a couple more?
