One likely issue is that the packaging on Linux still seems to be a bit
inadequate which may cause problems for new users:  one click still
appears to only include a 32-bit build on a platform that has been
64-bit for many (most?) of its users for quite a while.  New /
non-technical users who don't know what that means might be turned off
by that initial experience.  Why doesn't one click include both 32- and
64-bit VMs builds for 32-bit images rather than presenting a 'cross your
fingers' message (which assumes that they fire it up from a terminal
window to even see it) when launching?
