Matthias, as a Linux user (though not developer, I'm afraid), I would
love to have network support on the Linux Einstein port. Do you have
any idea how different it would be from the OSX implementation - given
the Posix roots of both systems? As for not having a Linux machine, I
would have thought that VirtualBox would be sufficient - it's free of
charge, as is the Linux distribution to run on it. There's also always
the option of dual-booting an OSX (or Windows) machine with Linux.

Of course the fact that it's free of charge doesn't help with the lack
of time...
