OF course they do port Intent/VP to host OS and hardware platforms.

I don't see the problem with Intent's solution in regards to "transparent" binary portability.

It's not transparent for the mundane user. Not very one is elitist linux geek.

The focus of Intent's solution is "transparent" binary portability for mundane end user.
> while Linux and *BSD are free to do either as appropriate to the situation.
It's not transparent for mundane user.
