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.

its a shame to see Ryan Gordon's talent not be put to good use anymore for the project [cut] while it might not be "needed" it sure seems like it would have been appreciated and useful. c'est la vie.

This is debatable: if everyone's toy feature makes it into the kernel then the kernel is called 'bloated'..
