You can write Persian in GNOME, KDE, and Mozilla with late version of
Red Hat, althought with different levels of support. XFree86 also has a
keyboard layout called 'ir' for the Iranian Standard ISIRI 2901:1994.
glibc also has a Persian locale, allowing Persian special sorting (like
proper handling of Hamza), localized digits output, and things like
Of course the level of support in Red Hat 9 is a little higher (fixed
more bugs, etc). The major problem seems to be free and
Unicode-compatible fonts. To my best knowledge, no Persian font exists
that passes that criteria.
