Ben Nano arrived, can I use a Mac laptop running OS X instead of a linux machine to reflash Ben?

Unsolicited thought. After the next Ben Nanonote update, you might consider
investing the $$$ needed to have all remaining stock reflashed to the
current code. If that is not feasible, consider offering a microSD card
that has the latest and greatest image and charge what you need to charge
to more than break even. Ship that card using post, it works well for e.g.
Seed Studio.

Your base of gurus who have updated several times are NOT the target, but
this would be "friendly" for new Ben NN customers.

p.s. before someone says it, I CONFESS: while I read this list and the Ben
irc channel, I have not yet purchased a Ben. But I observe the software
continues to be refined. Step by step, as Wolf likes to remind us all. ;)
