Anybody virtualizing topo maps??




     Any word etymologically related to 'virtualize' is one 
more thing I haven't gotten around to looking at yet. I remember 
once, quite a while back, I had a quick look at VMware, thinking 
about ways to get my proprietary map software to talk to my GPSs 
under linux; but something about it turned me off.

     Installing & running GPS software under Wine/CXO has 
gotten way better in the last couple years, but I still can't do 
the crucial last step, so that I can transfer data back and 
forth.

     So I asked on Gmane's winelist if anyone else had. No 
claims, though I waited for them; but somebody there says he does 
it with ease using VMware.

     OK, so back to that -- wherever it is : here google, here 
google ... And the first I look at, dated last month, is

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/12/04/ibm_linux_lotus_virtual_desktop/

     Am I reading this right?? They seem to be saying that IBM 
now has something called VERDE, true free software, that does 
VMware's job better than VMware. Pure puffery by marketing 
droids? Or is there something to it? Has anybody had any 
experience with it yet??

	If so, are there tricks a/o gotchas to using it with F10??
