What kind of hardware do you need to run vmawre comfortably, I have a
Athlon 500 Mhz, with 128 mb ram, will that be enough? I am curious about
your experiences/hardware using vmware since I havent tried it myself. How
does it work out in real terms, ie how does a standard setup like
win98+microcrap office run under vmware+linux.

About Wine, it too is making giant leaps and bounds and it is worth taking
a look at it, it can run many windoze programs well, actually the older
the program is the more chance that wine will run it properly.

Best Wishes,
