Well, certainly YMMV.  There are other good reasons to use a virtual 
Linux under OS X but just to use PIL should not be one of them.  It's 
not *that* hard to get PIL working on OS X.  FWIW, I have it installed 
using MacPorts on hardware ranging from a 10-year-old Macbook running 
10.4 up to a current 10.6 iMac.
