If you have a contact there then maybe you should ask them why they list 
Linux support on their site and even sport the Linux penguin.  Here's a 
link (or two):

Looking at that page, you would think that Linux support was already being 
worked on.

According to this page 
(http://devsupport.ageia.com/ics/support/default.asp?deptID=1949), Linux 
support was suppose to be out as early as 2006.

And as for Mac:
