for simulation tools, cadence ldv, synopsys vcs and mentor graphics modelsim all can be used on linux

for synthesis, synopsys design compiler. cadence ambit buildgate does not have linux ver.

synopsys design comipler has linux version and no longer provides NT version.
The last version is 2002.5, just for linux on pc.

Deep IC,

I think the NT version of EDA tools may be not supported in the future. It is more easy (means low cost) for a EDA company to transfer a product from Unix to Linux.

ise 4.2

Xilinx ise 4.2 does not have any linux version, but you can run it's main executables such as, par , ngdbuild , map under linux, using wine. Even it seems that Xilinx's new ise 5.1 does not have a linux version yet.
As you know, running a windows program such as par.exe under linux, although possible, will consume a lot of time, and is slow, so you can not do big implementations under linux for xilinx FPGA.
However, Altera has ported it's quartus development tool to linux completely, when you run it under linux you will see a program just the same as it's windows version. I think there is now a technique that lets designers to compile their windows written code for linux, with out any big change.
