Man, I feel for you... that's what, five, six different OSs to support
It sounds a lot like the old days before OS X came out and I was
bouncing between Linux Distros and BSD variants on my workstation --
none of them quite had what I wanted, so I'd spend a few weeks or a
few months with some new OS, getting a feel for it and finally
figuring out that it wasn't any better than the last one. Then I'd rip
