FogBugz on Linux via Chilisoft

Does FogBugz run on Linux if the server has Chilisoft?

For those who don't know Chilisoft is an application which lets ASP applications run on Unix servers.

I doubt it would work, because it uses a bunch of ADO calls for the database connection... it's possible they work around that though.  But in addition we make use of COM objects and I don't believe it knows how to load DLLs and CreateObject COM objects...

I think that for such a small application, it's feasible to change it to support Chili!soft. I found a page on their site with more info:

As I said, it is possible. I do not say that it would be cheap.... at $250 an hour more expenses, it would easily cost up to $5,000 for such a change.

There is still the COM object/DLL issue even after you figure out the database problem...
