there are minimals for linux, but often integration in unix involves a 
bit more (depends on how one uses unix, things like permissions and such)

here i use the windows minimals for projects where authors need an 
editor as well (scite); the linux minimals are used on the servers where 
we run many tree's in parallel; i think that for most linux users it's 
fint to use the debian packages; just as on the mac the i-installer does 
a good job of keeping up;

by now, the debian packages are pretty complete and have all things 
needed (norbert is handling that: preining at logic.at); afaik they also 
support engine subpath now which is a good thing
