ModelConverterX on Linux

Yesterday I updated my Linux machine to the latest version of Ubuntu. One of the components that was updated along the way was Wine. So this morning I decided to try to start ModelConverterX using Wine. I had tried this before, but then it resulted in a crash as far as I remember, because one of the DLL files tried to access a Windows specific function. But, slightly to my surprise, ModelConverterX now ran fine. Below you see a screenshot of the tool in action on Ubuntu, loading a FSX MDL file.

I think it is good news the tools runs on Linux as well, for example for developers who want to convert some of their MSFS work to FlightGear or the other way around.
