All we're talking about is a build environment... Jeez.

Seriously, once we are able to boot from a hard drive then being able to
work on it will be easier, but to let people work on the kernel, or the kits
or whatever else they feel like in linux/win32 or any other os doesn't seem
so silly to me. Seems quite sensible really.

Anyway, we can add rules tro determine the OS and have things switched
on/off accordingly. I couldn't see how to do it which is why i didn't add
anything more than I did.

Over to the buildmeisters...
