    I'd be especially interested in supportng AMD. If nothing else we need them around to compete against Intel and drive system advancements.

  9. I thought about this a lot and still don't know the answer!

    The problem is I don't use a LINUX box in the same way that I use my Mac. I don't even use the VM contained LINUX in the same way.
