I think this list would be appropriate. This list seems to center on 
Linux because it is becoming widely deployed in schools, but it is 
not an exclusive list. See some of Mike Eschman's posts about 
Internet radio broadcasts, for example.

That being said, what we want is fast, flawless Microsoft, 
Macintosh, BeOS, BSD, Solaris, AND Amiga binary compatibility that 
will run on a 286 with no cost. :-)
