that's actually not the problem. The problem is automating unit testing. 
The supported systems is driven by a script already. People don't always

You have to recall: 'added' or 'broken' requires a test. How do we do 
these tests? That's the hard problem.

we'll take it :-)

I think this is a GREAT idea. Thanks for your offer of support.

we need to work out how to do this type of thing, but for now: what kind 
of hardware makes a good desktop? I'd really like to see some K8 desktops
