Currently, there are no versions of Avant or Orca for Linux although there is a possibility of that in the future. Also, the source isn't availible currently and I doubt it ever will be.

The Gecko engine is of course open source but the Orca parts are owned by Anderson & he chooses not to share that propriety information.
