I have a Mac at home. Mainly because I like to have a laptop, and I love
the keyboard, it's lovely to type on, and all I ever do anyway is code
against remote machines, so it's fine with me.  I do know what Cygwin is
though, and I never really liked it.  I prefer a real Linux dist in that
case, I suppose I could use the old Compaq P100 I've got in my closet, but
in that case I need a broadband router and a couple of meters of network
cable, which I am not sure I have.  Can't have the thing running in my
bedroom (where my cable modem sits) since the old bastard makes more noise
than a jetplane.

I develop everything straight on the server, with FTP for the source files,
and I compile through the shell.  Easier that way.

Would perhaps be better if we made a joint effort, then it'd probably be  a
little better than if we all did one version each. :)  Your call though.
