Core product, yes. But you're still stuck with their GUI-based rule
editor/viewer.

Yup.  I worked for a place that basically did Checkpoint consulting
work.  We ran linux virtually everywhere including our CP boxes(SPLAT
being based on old RH), but found despite a few things that ran in
Linux, we flat out couldn't do our jobs without Windows.

I ended up running SmartDashboard in Win2k within Vmware on my Slackware
laptop.

They're a strange company.  Their core product runs on Linux, but the
end-user stuff is essentially all Windows.  I guess they figure most
people admining it can't handle something else?
