Could you not run linux inside a VMWare VM or WIndows in side VMWare?

i have never used VMWare. i'll probabky try it out soon though. good idea, as usu. PenguinFreak.
Vijay has confirmed what kendan said.
if they would release the source then i could have compiled it myself. sooner or later i'm gonna have to see the source on the client or my paranoia is going to require that i stop folding. its not paranoia when i am blindly donating my cpu's clock cycles to a binary whose source is undisclosed.

edit: maybe that is a bit harsh. i mean i do run Windows
and many other executables whose source i never see...
:rolleyes:
