A VM is good for workshops and hands-on sessions to teach people how to use the ET.  But we also need to provide practical information for how to use the ET on machines that people actually want to use.  The main tutorial should in principle be independent of the place it is run.

So we would have a set of "setting up on Mac OS", "setting up on Fedora", "setting up on the ET VM", "setting up on Queen Bee" documents, and then a tutorial which can be followed on any of these systems.  We may need a couple of "special case" discriminations in the general tutorial, but hopefully these will be minimal.

Keeping the tutorials up-to-date should be part of the release process, and I think should be considered quite important.
