I am thinking of buying IDA Pro for my Linux programming environment after reverse engineering a bit with OllyDBG (under WINE)... But before I endorse into such a costly purchase I ask the following question(s):
- If I have native IDA Pro on Linux, can it disassemble/decompile a Windows PE (or Mac OS X apps as a bonus)?
- If not, when I multi boot Windows, can I download the Windows version of IDA on the Windows without purchasing it again?
Some renowned programs I'd like to reverse (for fun) are Windows executables, so if it can't disassemble a Windows executable from Linux, I'll have to multi boot (tedious)
If it helps, I have a 32-bit machine with a x86 processor
