Is it possible to use Cadence on Linux platforme?

When you use these programs under Windows, how much of your time is spent waiting for the computer, compared to the time the computer is waiting for you to plan your next move? I know that, with Protel, the computer spends _much_ more time waiting for me than I spend waiting for the computer.

In any case, I suspect that a Windows program running under an emulator (I know WINE is not an emulator...) on linux will be no faster than the same program under Windows on a comparable machine.

on company time. The odds are far greater that the program is waiting for the user than the user is waiting for the program.
