Neat, thanks for that, I'll have a look. I'm very slowly transitioning 
my computing "life" over to linux, but I've been told by Andrew Straw (I 
think http://visionegg.org might have some details, see the mailing 
list) that it's harder to get close to a real-time OS with linux (while 
running high level stuff like opengl and python) than it is in windows. 
I hope that's changed, or is changing. I'd love to switch over to 64-bit 
linux. As far as windows is considered, I'd like 32bit winxp to be my 
last iteration.
