Good to hear of people finding the solutions they need, especially using
things like CrossOver.
VirtualBox is a great piece of software and is getting the attention it
deserves. My only annoyance is that they don't do a 64 bit version, but
that was only because I wanted to use it in place of the horrible
Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 at my Tafe class which was using 64bit Windows
Server 2003. Here at home its a different story :).
