SketchUp and LayOut editions for Ubuntu?

Anybody out there running Sketchup and Layout on Ubuntu?
Now that Apple is dropping OS X I’m thinking about moving to an open source OS.
Is it possible?
Is it any good?
If so, what’s the first step?

where does that idea come from?


In my experience Apple is notorious for not giving legacy support. My early 2009 MacBookPro will not support the new macSierra.
I need to move to something less vulnerable to obsolescence.
Do you know if Sketchup and Layout will run on Ubuntu?
If it does is it any good?

There is no native Linux version of SketchUp or Layout. Some people have success in running them under a virtual machine, but this is not supported by Trimble so the only help you will get is from others who have tried it.
