Ain't that the truth. I finally sprung for a $2G's of new hardware, a dual-core
desktop and a laptop, the same. 2GB's RAM each. Nothing extraordinary by
today's standards, but after running other people's throwaways for years
(philosophical choice), I no longer "wrestle" with VM's as I once did.

For now, I'm running Workstation v.5.5 on a ThinkPad T61. I can run two VM's,
say Fedora and W2K, on top of the XP host and this thing does not skip a beat.
Linux makes a better host than Windows though, but I'm not there yet. When
I told one of my co-workers I'm running VM's on Windows, my character apparently
came into question (not the first time!).
