It's recently been discovered that TRLog now runs reasonably well on
Linux' DOS emulation.  (either dosemu has been tweaked to better-handle
real-time applications, or the improvement in hardware speeds since last
time it was tried has made a big difference)

dosemu allows one to map Linux device names to DOS names.  I'm not so
sure that'll work for ports that are being used for the "wrong" thing
(i.e., keying through the parallel/serial ports) but I'd bet you could
map DOS COM4 to a USB serial device.  Might be interesting to try.

I would not be surprised if CT and NA also now work reliably under
