A Holiday Present for the Linux Fans

We're surprised by the number of requests for Linux support, since the vast majority of netbooks shipped have been preloaded with Windows.
Anyway, ask and ye shall receive! We've ported the Oculus server software to linux, and it should run fine in many different distributions. The screenshot below shows it running on our bot in Ubuntu 11.10

We still have to finish porting a couple features (eg., battery life monitoring). Will post the updated package to our download page as soon as it's ready.

Thanks,
Colin
