Iris but no Windows

What would I be missing if I purchased the IRIS but only have a Linux box and an Android Tablet as computers?

The idea of running Mission Planner under Wine / Mono is unappealing as its a half baked solution with its own set of problems. I don't own a Windows box, but have several Linux (Fedora 19/20) boxes.

Can command line under Linux provide a replacement for MP, at least at some minimal level? Are there any utilities available that in some combination (scripting) can provide what MP provides?

BTW - I'm an EE / professional software developer strictly Linux for the last 14 years.

PS - Any plans to rewrite MP as a web app so it can run under any O/S via a browser?
