Same here. I think that Linux-users are far more likely to tinker on their own. I found a solution (through my friends at google ;) ) which might be a solution, at least for Ubuntu: http://www.tkalin.com/blog_posts/using-console-vim-as-vim-protocol-handler-in-ubuntu
I'll give it a try, maybe lauchning gVim for that. YMMV, of course.
