Will ArcGIS 10 work properly using wine or crossweaver?

You may want to vote to bring ArcGIS Desktop to Linux –  Chethan S. Nov 27 '11 at 15:49

The Answer was on James Fee's Blog from your question there.

"For Linux: only ArcGIS Server, the ArcGIS Engine Runtime, and ArcReader, but not (likely ever) ArcGIS Desktop. As for Desktop: why in the world would you even want to install that collection of buggy 32-bit COM objects on a nice, clean 64-bit Linux box If you want a Linux desktop with GIS, then the excellent GRASS/QGIS/PostGIS combo will do a lot more than 99% of most GIS users in the workforce will ever need, provided they are not all hung up on storing their spatial data in a proprietary format…"

Not that I know of. It does however run just fine using VirtualBox to emulate the OS itself, I've had no problems using ArcGIS in this configuration.

if you are running arcgis in a virtual box guest session, could you help me with this question? gis.stackexchange.com/q/48957/13692 –  vertoe Jan 25 '13 at 15:53

Currently I am running ArcGIS10 in the last VirtalBox version (not the OSE version) under Ubuntu and it works very fine for the moment.
