Run Windows Vista on Linux/ XP

"One of the downsides of beta testing is that your test machine invariably becomes a splintered mess in a very short of space of time, as your fresh beta build gets pulled apart, tweaked, recovers from crashes and so on.
Then a new build comes out and you start all over again.
So, in these trying circumstances, VMWare Workstation is my friend and salvation.
Installing Vista on VMWare has been an interesting experience. It is a supported workstation type, in both 32-bit and 64-bit editions, but the workstations are labelled quite boldly as “experimental”. In other words, “if it doesn’t work, don’t come whining to us”." Read more.
Note from the Nerd: Well, the title of the article says it is a HOW-TO, but don't expect step-by-step instructions. Rather, it gives good advice on getting Vista working properly on VMWare Workstation. I am currently download VMWare Workstation with an eval liscence, so I'll see if I can get Vista Installed... then again, maybe my hard drives space won't last... ooooo..... *holds breath*
