RSP - Monitoring WMI from Linux

Can anyone explain to me if / why you cannot monitor WMI remotely if you run the RSP probe on a Linux box. I understand that Linux does not use WMI itself but would is it not possible to bundle whatever library's or dependencies the RSP probe needs to monitor WMI while running on Linux. I suspect this is not that straightforward, however I just don't know why. As an MSP we need to (in some cases) have windows monitoring boxes deployed instead of our standard Linux boxes just to be able to run the RSP probe. This of course is not ideal. 

 

Any theory's would be appreciated.
