Say it ain't so, Lattice

It had to happen. I had my first disappointment with Lattice's Diamond FPGA tool. I've been working my way through their tutorial and I got stuck on Task 4: Verify Functionality with Simulation. When I tried to open the Aldec Active-HDL simulation tool it was no where to be found. After doing several Google searches and some time spent scouring the Lattice website, I found the culprit: The Linux version Diamond excludes Aldec.

The Linux version of Diamond ships without an HDL simulator... really?

It looks like Diamond supports ModelSim. I'll have to install it separately and see if I can connect them.
