Yes. Well, you try that: buy expensive software and go use Ubuntu. Then, check if works between some release cycle. I will offer a piece of advice: Linux is so prone to mutation and so proud in their disregard for any sane ABI policy, that I recommend for those that wish to use commercial software on Linux that they choose Red Hat, because that is what all the vendors support, mostly.
