First of all this isn't a Debian-specific change but a change in
glibc. Second vmware isn't Debian. Third Debian goes about free
software, vmware isn't. This is clearly the wrong list, either go to
some vmware list or go to the glibc lists if you think it's a bug in

And yes, I think vmware is a waste of processing power and
bandwith. Those posts also waste my time.

I got GNU/Linux to boot on plex86. The Hurd doesn't work on it at the
moment (plex86 development is a bit stalled at the moment). IMHO it's
very usable, bochs is more stable but slower. For all supported
systems read the documentation of the packages.
