I think I do count...

That just demonstrates sorry state of desktop Linux, because ISVs 
generally don't deliver their software for Linux.

There are few others, like Adobe (Flash), Nero CD-burning software (I 
purchased this in the past) and of course Intel's software development 
tools (ICC/IFC, IPP, MKL, TBB, VTune, etc).

How would you propose ISV to deliver their commercial proprietary 
software offering for Linux?
