Just wanted to update you guys that neomallers portal 9.0.0 application can be run on a linux machine.
Here are the details:
Ubuntu 8.04 (I need to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.xx hopefully it'll work there too)
Kernal Linux 2.6.24 - xx
Wine Hq software 1.1.32 (windows emulation) is needed to install and run the Portal application
I was able to create a profile and update sales history and shop front information. I haven't played around with every feature in portal but it seems to be working well.
Tip: Do not use right click to paste, instead use the ctrl + v *cough*
