[gopher] Re: Gopher Client Testing
Have you looked into qemu?
I don't know much about it, other than a fellow I
know who isn't allowed to dual boot or remove windows
from a university box has been allowed to run this emulator.
I have heard he has run FreeBSD of several releases as well
as minix3 and some GNU/Linux distros. Even using XWindows
from within the emulator.

> Those of us at JumpJet unfortunately do not have the ability to test software from many of the platforms to which Gopher Clients or Servers have been written. We at JumpJet are primarily "old-school". Our personal interests are in Pure DOS (WITHOUT Windows 3x) and Warp OS/2 (and one semi-functional Vic-20 just for fun). Windows 2000 is what we use in the office as our everyday workhorse operating system.

Therefore, JumpJet needs user feedback about Gopher Clients and Servers for any and all OSes (especially the"odd-ball" OSes like NeXT, Acorn, and VMS).
