Maybe I'm in the minority, but I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about a native Linux release. After windows I assume?

I don't mean to be a pain, but on p0sixninja's recent tweet he references beginning work on rc6, and windows is here and gone, Linux soon? Thx!!

I'm only guessing, but I suspect it will be released with the Windows version.

Actually, I don't understand why it wasn't released for all three platforms at the start -- the platform-specific code should be almost identical to the previous release...

Could always run XP or 7 from a virtualbox

I hear VM doesn't work with greenpois0n, but that was on OSX so I might have better luck, will find out tomorrow I guess :)

Sadly since Linux is the minority Windows does get priority. At least a jailbreak is a one-time deal and you can always dual-boot/borrow a computer/virtualize/etc
