"I think Linux can benefit from running on a VP system."
Why would I want Linux to run more slowly ? I don't understand. You're going to have to explain slowly and clearly why making all my software slower AND paying a license fee to Tao would be a "benefit". Every piece of Linux software that's released runs fine on my PC. 99% of the same software runs on Ole's PPC Linux system, including EVERYTHING in the modern Red Hat or Debian distributions.
[ Do you also think people should own cars that are 10% more expensive and 10% slower but have a reversable steering column so that they can be safely driven in countries with contrary road laws ? ]
It's also important to realise that Tao's "binary portability" does not apply in temporal terms. That is, software from one version of AmigaDE (say the "Fruity Loops special developer edition, Dec 2001") won't necessarily work with a different version (say the "Double Intent pre-non-release, June 2002") and so from the POV of an end user, AmigaDE is actually worse than the supposedly "non portable" system they have now.
