INSIDE SCOOP, GAMERS: In the new version of D&D, it will no longer be "Edition Wars." It will be "Edition Lair Assault." - dungeonbastard
Sadly no. Linux has moonlight which is equivelant of Silverlight 2.0, but the CB requires Silverlight 4.0. And don't get your hopes up that Moonlight will ever be up to date enough to run the CB or that the software team will get a clue and ditch Silverlight, its just not gonna happen. You really only have two options: either dual-boot windows or use windows in a VM. I've had good luck with VirtualBox, but most VM software should do.
The downside to Virtualbox, well on my machine anyway, is it's so slow when I try and run Windows on it. Maybe I just need to boost the memory.

Yeah, its pretty slow on my machine as well, but it gets the job done. You could also try VMWare. Also, you may check your bios to see if virtualization extensions are present and enabled. That can help speed things up as well. And its sad to say, but you can always dual boot.
