Virtual B4PPC (for safety & for use within Linux)

    I've just started fiddling with the registry & didn't fancy the idea of getting shut out of windows by my own stupidity. There is a safer way: use a virtual machine.
    I've now got an old copy of XP running in a virtualbox machine, with basic4PPC installed in it. Take a snapshot of the system & you can roll it back to a working version, but from outside the OS.
    VirtualBox also runs under Linux, so there is the possibility of developing software on a Linux box (albeit while actually owning a copy of windows to use basic4PPC & to run the programs).

    These virtual machines are great stuff. I am using VMWare but there are others out there as well - I believe Microsoft has one called VirtualPC - and the good thing is that most of them are free of charge.

    Been using B4PPC with VirtualBox on Linux for a while. The coolest thing is the "Fluid mode" (is it "Liquid mode" in English? We use the word "Fluid" in Catalan): "Look ma, Gnome Basic4PPC!" :D
