Unfortunately, in order to port Prophet to Linux we would have to have a
versionof the Win32 API as well as MFC for Linux. We are using a third-party
version of
this for the above mentioned platforms to port from Windows to Unix. As of now,

there has been no mention of releasing that product for Linux.

As of now, Prophet is free of charge if downloading over the web or via the FTP
Sources will never be delivered as the source tree is roughly 150 meg in size.
;) As
far as I know, Prophet will remain free for the life of the NIH contract that
it is
currently maintained under.
