It would be nice to have it supported on the Linux operating system.There used to be that feature in ArchiMate Modeling of Enterprise Architect called inherited relationships. Now it's gone.I think that collaboration can be better.It should be made Windows compatible.The reporting needs improvement.Weak in regards to data modelling.
