Good stuff.  Honestly I'd prefer to not have to use Windows/Mac for
anything whatsoever.  I really was just trying to see if it would even
build.  After all Linux is the superior OS IMHO.  I'm a linux guy stuck
in a OSX world.  For the work i do I absolutely have to have a solid,
stable video editor though.  

Good things are definitely worth waiting for.  I can't express enough
how excited I am to be contributing to the Lumiera project.  You guys
are so welcoming to newbies.  Even those of us, me, who aren't familiar
with the Language.  This is great!
