If I'm patching some general Java code then I just test on my local
workstation and wait for the build system to try it elsewhere; but if I
am writing code that is platform-specific then I will test locally on
windows and linux before committing (because I can).  As the number of
platforms increases then I'll need access to more architectures to test.

Tim
