Yeah I agree with your comments laclasse. Early days yet. The concept will take on as it is the ultimate way to go with these new systems.
Interesting comment you make about vmware on XP vs vmware on linux. Is that due to better scheduling under Linux or is it something else?
Unfortunately for me I have to run XP native and Linux as a guest
. Although if I need full CPU grunt I can always shut down XP and dual boot to Linux native. Most of the time tho I don't need top end grunt for Linux but I do need it for Windows apps.
I have yet to download vmware as I am still configuring my windows sw.
Am I also correct in thinking that Linux still does not have drivers that will read NTFS? However I believe there are ext3 drivers that allow WinXP to read Linux ext3 FS?
Since I need to tranfer file between both systems with a 60 Gb disk I thought a setup of 30 Gb WinXP under NTFS, 5 Gb FAT for shares, 20 Gb for Linux under ext3.
