Yes, I will do that, I already wanted to do this some time ago, but then 
never got around to actually doing it. 
The only remaining problem is that I do not have valid licenses for these two 
I know it's kind of stupid to say something like this on a public mailing 
list, and maybe the next email I'll get has "our piracy department wants to 
talk to you" in the subject line,  
but to be honest I really do not feel guilty about this, since I never used 
these applications in any kind of production environment, and personal use 
should always be free of charge IMO, just the way it already is with many 
applications like jbuilder, staroffice, DB2 etc.

<hint> If the companies producing these two applications actively supported 
linux, for instance by making sure that their applications really worked 
perfectly with wine I would not hesitate to buy a copy of them, even though 
that would stress my financial budget as a student quite a bit. </hint>
well, probably none of these companies are ever going to actually read this, 
which is almost sad, but actively contacting them saying "thanks to some 
cracker group I'm tinkering with your software for free, and if you had a 
linux version, I would even pay for it", seems just a bit too drastic ;-)
