The lack of any decent copy protection on Linux *is* a problem. There is
Shiva but it's quite old and has a crack available for it. The problem is,
I don't think there is quite enough demand to spur a commercial
development of one (and I fail to see how to make an open source copy
protection system without hardware support).
As to whether he can use exeCryptor on a native Linux app, no, I'm afraid
that's not possible. It might work in Wine but then you'd have to run the
Windows version of this app.
