Really?  The version 0.3.0 distribution includes a shell script and
comments for Linux installation (see the file "install.html").  I don't
see a bias, but I haven't looked very closely at the latest version.

Yes, I have it running right now, after downloading the most
current version (0.3.0)  from SourceForge and modifying the
"export CLASSPATH..." statement in the foa.sh file.  (Obviously,
if you have FOA running, you have made similar modifications.)

 From your comments above, it appears that you have not first created
a new project.  All the "manager view" windows are blank until you do
so.
