I currently use Windows 7 as my host machine and want to move to Fedora.
I have IDA Pro + hexrays decompiler, VMWare Workstation, Hiew, Visual Studio, Olly, and several other smaller tools that should run just fine in wine.
I know I can get the VMWare Workstation licence for linux and it would be just fine.
Does anyone have experience in IDA in both linux and windows. If so, do you see any difference in its usability (decompiler, IDAPy plugins ...)
There is no realistic replacement for Visual Studio in linux, but it would be nice if eclipse or some other IDE would compile for Windows.
