While it's true that most PCB editors are predominantly used on Windows-based PCs, there are a few that are catered to Linux-based OS users, including Ales Hvezda's gEDA project, which feature collaborative and open-sourced EDA tools. The collaborative side is done through developers who continually develop and update the gEDA toolkit, which includes the gEDA schematic capture and netlisting platform for circuit design, PCB layout for refining those schematics and Icarus Verilog (a version of HDL used to model electronic systems). It also sports ngspice/ngucap SPICE/analogue simulators, gerbv Gerber viewer and GTKWave digital waveform viewer.
