That's not a bad idea. I had it running on Linux via Crossover/Wine for about a year. I think Beersmith is the overall winner of the brewing software out there. It's just so sane in its approach to everything.
Pretty much all software does recipe formulation well. My big gripe with most software is non-intuitive mash scheduling. That's why I like Beersmith the best, and BrewTarget is a very close second for mashing.
