I'd have real serious doubts about that Petter, no reason to as LinuxCNC, 
other than needing the RTAI patched kernel for its I/O, can live happily 
with any common drive setup I have ever done over better than the last 
decade.  These guys, while fairly savvy with computers, are for the most 
part, Machinists first as thats what pays the bills. Given their 
druthers & spare time, or an itch to scratch, they would put their 
efforts into a better gui to run it with. Or running down bugs and 
fixing them.  Generally speaking, its been years since I have 
encountered a show stopper bug.
