Being locked out of some oddball thing is not at all the same
situation as being locked into what only a single vendor provides. But
try something like 'jenkins'  (http://jenkins-ci.org/) with an
assortment of cross-platform nodes to get the idea of how handy a
language with remoting across many platforms can be.  It's painless to
install try, even if you only use it on a single box.
