Today my mail computer was changed. Instead of a 800MHz/256MB AMD K6 machine I now have a 2.8GHz/512MB P4 which enables me to wait for the global Exchange server ten times as fast as before. Yeah!
But my development machine is still unchanged at 800MHz/384MB AMD K6.
Since I'm not permitted to switch the purposes of both machines but only to boot a second OS on the Mail machine (loosing my ability to read mail) . I found following half-legal solution: 1.) grab one of our VMWare packages and install it on the Dev-Linux on the mail machine 2.) boot the corporate image inside the VMWare
This should enable me to read mails AND develop software on the high-performance machine.
Well, but first I have to install Linux on it....
