Any response from StataCorp?  I posted to the list rather than requesting a private quote since I thought other Linux users might be interested in what StataCorp policy is in this respect.

I was told by a sales rep a month or two ago that there was an additional fee or licence option (for single-user licences) that would allow one to use Stata under both operating systems -- provided only one instance of Stata is used at any time.

Thanks to Neil Shephard for his suggestion of using the Wine emulator.  However, Wine apparently consumes a lot of RAM and CPU speed which makes this option less practical for older portables like my 800MHz 256MB system.
