XtalView, WhatIf, Mage... - any generic list of unix mol/bio/chem software 
should do. At the current state of development, i would expect almost any 
molbio software for unix systems to run under linux. Perhaps a list of 
programs that _do_not_ work would be more useful, though i assume that it 
would mainly contain either hardware (e.g. SGI graphics)- specific things 
or commercial programs where the vendor does not provide either source code
or a linux binary.
