Kontakt, at least Kontakt 2, ran decently under Ardour-VST with the wine
layer last I tried it, with the exception of the convolution reverb.  But
the samples were perfectly usable.  Admitedly I was only using the default
sample library that came with it, so it doesn't stand up to EW to my
knowledge, but it is an option.  I am not sure how Kontakt 3 runs as I don't
own that to try it.

I personally haven't found a good sample library that is native to Linux
with nearly the same breadth and quality of samples as EW has in their
libraries.  But maybe it is out there and I just don't know about it.  In
the meantime running the VST under wine via Ardour-VST etc. may be your best
