About the only easy part of producing a Dune film is the portrayal of "Beast" Rabban; he is just a brute, albeit a useful brute. All other characters have their complexities.

Personally, I think that a good portrayal of Duke Leto would be very difficult. He is a tragic figure who successfully (and honourably) walks a fine line between his loyalties and his duties, but doing so inevitably leads him to disaster.
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.

--Winston Churchill

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
