interesting read on status of ongoing 64-linux emulation work .... 1 
question: they mention going to F19/20 or C6/7 as baselines for 64-bit 
emulation .... they also state that current commercial apps need f10 
(32-bit, by definition) compatibility to work .... why not a F10 
compatible 64-bit (or maybe C5, similar generation) ? They should be 
part-way there w/ existing f10 stuff, there was a 64-bit f10 (I ran it 
for a while) & it should be compatible w/ newer (linux) stuff as it 
emerges .... Just a thought ....
