Amen to that!
Rebooting to test in Windows was such a nuisance for me that I actually
went and PAID for a copy of VMware Workstation. Whilst VirtualBox has
now reached a reasonable level of maturity, I don't regret my purchase.
All from the comfort of my regular Debian/Fluxbox desktop, I can have XP
Home, NT4, Win98, DOS6.22, FreeBSD booted and on my second monitor
(actually my laptop display) in seconds. No way would I ever go back -
Barring the testing in various versions of IE which my work demands,
it's a handy way to run iTunes ;-)
PS - now it only remains for me to get one of my TWO corrupt (legitimate
MSFT) copies of XP Pro to install.
