WINE/CrossOver Office Compatibility

Any interest in Linux compatibility? I was able to run Win WP12 for a while in Linux with Cross Over Office, but recent updates have stopped further use. It's probably too much to hope for a Linux version of WordPerfect. BTW I and some other hardy folks are still using WP8.1, originally bundled with CLOS - Corel Linux Operating System - from 20 years ago.

Update #2: CrossOver 21 has killed compatibility with Paradox 11. My software has Paradox 11 included with WPX3. With previous versions of CrossOver, where WP12 or X3 failed to install, Paradox 11 installed and ran. Paradox 11 appears to install but does not run, neither does the runtime version. Now this is weird, and unpleasantly so.

Update : I installed the latest release of CrossOver Office 20.0.4. I tried installing WP X3 this time since it has failed with previous versions. This time the installation succeeded. A vast number of Ubuntu dependencies was downloaded in the process. I use Mint 20.2.
So far the installation is stable, but I have not fully stress tested it yet. Macro recording runs, but the macro does not save.

I don't want so much Linux compatibility as a native one.
Given what we're learning about Win 11, it'd be prudent for Corel to offer a WPLINUX again

I too would like a Linux version of the current WordPerfect. The original Linux versions of WP were contracted out to a developer that adapted the UNIX version,so it is unlikely Corel has in-house coders to develop a new version. I would very much like to be wrong on this.
