|Lately, since getting D820, I have been lazy and used VMWare "virtual appliances" with VMWare Player running under XP. I've run VMWare versions of Red Hat 3 and Suse 10. My employer uses both distros for some of our digital film post production products. I also use Knoppix 5.0 fairly often. I will be setting up dual boot with Suse 10 in near future. I also like Ubuntu but have not played much with it.|
It makes me shudder to think of how slow your I/O is likely going in that(And thus likely your workflow) if you are doing post in a VM. I am guessing your employer runs the work natively and you are just running them in VMs? Speaking of which, which tools are you using or did you all write your own? Curious parties want to know.

I only use VMWare when doing phone support from my laptop and when I want to look at our menus in our application without having to boot into Linux. Our actual applications are not normally used under VMWare. If I want speed, I use one of my other laptops that I already set up with Linux. All the SW are custom applications.
