When I first started using Linux, Corel was providing Draw for Linux (along with WP/Corel Office). It was really the Windows version running on a specially tuned wine. This may be the plan here as well. 

At the time I had been using QuattroPro a lot in my business, but the solution was so unsatisfactory I settled on StarOffice instead. 

Also, at the time, Corel Office for Linux was a bit cheaper than the Windows version, and Corel Draw for Linux was being given away. Wondering about Adobe's pricing plans. Without that sort of incentive, I don't see the people in my office who use CS switching from their beloved Macs.
