I am sure I am pointing out the obvious, but have you checked out all the various resources and links at Linuxcnc.com? The reason I ask is when I was just getting started it seemed to me there were more open source CNC applications available that run under Linux than Windows. Since I finally just went with a Windows controller (Mach 3) because I already had a machine profile to run with it I never followed up on all those, but your posts on writing your own code gernating scripts reminded me of that. Might be worth a look see if you have not already exhausted that resource.
