Need help solving a zip archive timestamp & GNU make interaction problem on Linux, MacOSX, and other systems.

We ran into the following conundrum while distributing source code for some open-source software we produce. Our code is pretty straightforward C++ stuff with makefiles designed for GNU make. We distribute the package as a zip archive. Works on most systems (Linux, Windows, MacOS, FreeBSD and others). Now, zip stores and unzip restores the file timestamps. Problem is, if someone downloads the archive in an earlier time zone than the one in which it was produced, the unarchived files have a timestamp in the future. [more inside]

Linux On Aluminum iMacs: Does It Work?

Any one have experience running Ubuntu or another Linux on an aluminum iMac? (Aluminum keyboard, wireless mouse, 2.66 Core 2 Duo) What works? What doesn't? I'm not a Linux neophyte. I ran it on my desktop for about ten years, then moved to Apple after banging my head on wireless drivers. (Bought three successive cards that the "community" said worked. They didn't.) I don't mind editing scripts, but I want all my hardware to work immediately after an install or after I grab some supported packages. I'm through chasing around for unsupported code that some guy says works on his hardware. Is my Time Capsule going to be at all useful? (Posted this question on the Ubuntu forum and got only two rather unhelpful replies.)

Jaunty, Karmic, or Lucid???

I want to set up Ruby on Rails development environment on my windows laptop at work, and plan to set up Virtual Box and install some version of linux, probably ubuntu, as a guest OS. I use windows mostly for work and OS X at home, but havent done much with linux (my office's production environment is linux, so I do a tiny bit). Which version of ubuntu should I go with right now? I see "Lucid Lynx" has just been released (I love the naming), should I go with that or a previous recent version?
