Blender is software!

And anything could be Linux compatible if you chose to program it that way. I'm going to have to think a bit before I can figure out how to do it to a bicycle though...

Re: Linux-incompatible Hardware

Actually, I've been working on that microwave issue.  I'll get pictures up on my site with a how-to, if I get it to work.  Hopefully there are others out there that need thier PC to make food...

All of those should work fine with Linux!  The sink and toilet take quite a bit of work though...
