The core issue here is that the license for Mac OS X prevents us from
running the OS in a virtual machine. The way we protect ourselves
from random folks haxoring the EWS on Linux is by running them on EC2
and re-imagining the machines periodically.
If you'd like to donate hardware that you're willing to have random
folks run code on, please let me or Eric know and we'll show you how
to get the mac-ews up and running.
