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.
