None, and dont forget the Linux crowd likes to modify and tweak software so they'll end up with a hand full of incompatible GQ-4X software distros.

I'm evaluating leaving Windows 10 and going to Linux. I just installed Pop_OS, a Debian/Umbuntu based Linux and so far it is doing very well. This is one of the programs that may force me to get a cheep laptop to run Win10 and just store it with the burner if there is no hope for a Linux port. I would think this would be on the road map some place as MacOS is FreeBSD based and therefore very Linux like so doing a Linux or MacOS version would lead to the other very easily. I don't need, nor do I care if you open source your product. It's your product and you can close or open it if you wish. I have an nVidia graphics card and run the closed source bin. I just want the best computing experience I can get and I'm getting tired of MS Windows bloat. In my opinion, the last good computer Apple produced was the 65C816 based IIgs. :) I have an older Macbook Pro running 10.13.6 as I needed one program (applesauce), though they are working on a Linux port of that as well. I'm down to about 3 programs at this point keeping me on Windows and I hope that a port will occur or a Windows VM will work.

I suppose you could run a VM.
