I got an email from Macromedia tech support telling me that my best bet for accessing ColdFusion on a Mac was to install YellowDog Linux. Do you have any perspective on this?

    Haven't used YDL in a while.

    As far as I know, YDL shares a computer with OS X -- each available (exclusively) with an alternate boot.

    YDL is not a supported platform for CFMX, so you would still need to install on a supported platform (such as Emulated RH Linux). Then you would need to port to YDL (similar to the port to OS X).

    I don't know which, YDL or OS X, would be the better platform.

    I see no advantage in running CFMX on YDL, unless for some other reason you need to run YDL and not OS X.
