(Of course this needs to support allowing to use all (payed and free) 3rd party Kontakt libraries. I suppose this would require not to do a Kontakt workalike, but to do a dedicated "out of the box" usable Linux wrapper for Kontakt and Native Access.)

The context you refer to had nothing to do with Kontakt,
just that the email issues making the 'normal'
U-he coupon management were 'not worth the trouble',
this time around. Hope people will find some soundsets,
instruments, and effects, to enhance their productions.

As for Kontakt, wine and linvst devs, are making it easier
for linux users to successfully install and register
Native Instruments products in general.
I will test the wine-staging 4.15 soon,
which might further improve things, based on a non-coding laymans
glance at the changelog.
