Out to lunch.

A two examples of proprietary software vendors that have supported Linux
for years (15+):

1) Mathematica: http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica/platforms/

2) Maple: http://www.maplesoft.com/products/system_requirements.aspx

They don't seem to have trouble getting their code (GUI included) to
work with various flavours of Linux.  

Surely "source-is-best" people make money too?
