Sorry, this doesn't follow. Just because you use linux doesn't mean they
couldn't put a serial number in there. They may have not bothered with
this functionality. I would suggest that if you are interested, you
contact Real Networks and express that interest. They exist for one
reason: to make money. If the cost of modification of the linux client
will pay off with enough subscribers they will probably follow that money.
