I just realized that I have a legitimate need for Mac, Windows, and Linux:
  • Mac: Aperture (because I'm a semiserious photographer, but not serious enough to warrant me a 12-core Mac Pro)
  • Windows: AutoDesk Inventor (3D parametric modeling)
  • Linux: General development, OpenCL, CUDA
All three require [serious] graphics acceleration, so virtualization is a very big no-no.

Hmm actually I could probably get away without Linux, but coding just works so much better on Linux than on Windows. Plus my EvilWM setup with my split keyboard and trackball just seems so hardcore and user unfriendly hahah

Time to build another box so I can run all three platforms concurrently?
