So tell them about it ;)
If the care a bit about other platforms they will at least think about it.
And if they can't rewrite their existing software because it would be too much work or the 
product is no longer in development you could still point them to wine and try to work 
together to get it run on wine.But imho it should be in this order and not the other way
