They want change all the Unix servers to Linux operating system and had plans to
run this new Dell under Linux.
Then I here from GCG that there are "NO" plans to port SeqMerge to Linux.

With SeqMerge, I have been able to do clustering of ESTs that no program that I
know of can really do.

Can we convince them there is a market demand for SeqMerge under Linux?
Should I push for another operating system? 
I invite suggestions as to 
1) What do I  do 'till they see the light.
2) How to apply pressure to divert a small part of their resources into porting
