Angelos are you up for trying a build based on the 64+mac iso? Just gave 
out another 25 flash drives, and at least 3 people asked about Mac. If 
we're going to stick to 12.04.x I think this might be a good build to 
make 32 and 64 builds. Something like DVDs and VM are 32 bit, mini (ie 
intended for flash drives) and VM are 64bit (4 total).


PS ~ 2-3 weeks I'll have networking straightened out on my cluster and 
can probably start making new VMs.
