Unfortunately, they seem reluctant to write a Linux version. We're looking to work with the new cheap Linux laptops out there. Are there any other ebook readers out there that support interactivity?
Our books work just fine as HTML, but we prefer the neatness of a single file, versus the mess of files you get with HTML.
Thanks for any help.

FBReader does not support the interactive features of the MOBI format.
Note that the Java version of MobiPocket Reader does not support them either, see Cross-platform feature support.
There have been reports of limited success using the Windows MobiPocket Reader under Linux via Wine. The problem with this approach is that the Windows version does many more things than just display ebooks, so Wine needs to do many things perfectly in order to fully support the Reader.

You can always use one of the HTML archive formats. Firefox at least has support for embedded images in HTML, so you can get away with a single (somewhat unwieldy) HTML file as well.
