What OS do you run?

I have yet to write the more interesting article :-). It will begin  
like this...

"Bowing to the OTP application packaging procedure, I wanted to have  
a way of upgrading applications with a "push of a button". More  
precisely, I wanted to be able to type make:all() to rebuild my
