Having it available for linux is not enough, at least wine would need to 
offer a wrapper dll that forwards java calls to the java engine (as 
executables try to hook into a java dll, and just fail if it isn't 
available) - the better option would ofcourse be... getting java 
working; I have no idea how hard that wrapper dll would be though
