How do I run Tiger?

There have been a few questions on various blogs/forums asking how I run Tiger (J2SE 5.0), given that I use Mac OS X rather than a PC. Well.... I have a linux box and I use the X support on OS X. My linux box is out on the open internet and generally accessible via SSH tunnel. It works quite well, given that it's got a very direct link to a very big pipe (It logically sits next to This trick doesn't work on airplanes, but that's why solitare was invented :-)

Several folks have asked if I get magic code drops from Apple. No. I shiver out in the cold like everyone else.
