The XAP400 _is_ usable inder Linux. The trick is to run the G-ware  
software with WINE - actually a version of WINE which has been  
modified to correct its serial port operation. For complete details,  
please see:

In a two machine setup, we run a display machine which also does the  
audio, share apps and XAP400 control, then the second machine does  
video capture (and, if this your only AG node, the second machine is  
also good for running a multicast beacon).
