Linux As we all know, Mac OS X has support for what is called 'fat binaries'. These are binaries that can carry code for for instance multiple architectures - in the case of the Mac, PowerPC and x86. Ryan Gordon was working on an implementation of fat binaries for Linux - but due to the conduct of the Linux maintainers, Gordon has halted the effort.

Thats all fine and dandy when you are using 1TB hdds. But what happens when you need to put the system on a rom chip? Or pxe boot it. I dont want the extra cruft in my system.
