Lost in Support: export SUPPORTED_ENVIRONMENT=?

After finishing with the OpenSource applications, I am going to continue my Lost In Support series with the proprietary CAD programs. For better results I believe that a new "variable" is needed. Which flavor of Linux does the proprietary app support officialy?
For OpenSource applications supporting every kind of Linux distros, it isn't difficult. At least, the source code is available for compiling so you can install the application in every distro.
Proprietary apps behave very differently. The CAD vendors choose what kind of distro(s) they want to support. This choice affects the overall Linux support experience.
So here it is: export SUPPORTED_ENVIRONMENT= ?
