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 : 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.
