| Then again, "if this were done as a VM where the Linux machine were to boot 
| and they installed Windows XP in a VirtualBox or some other VM, then that 
| might be acceptable," erroneus added. "Then they would have their safer, 
| virus-free environment for email and web browsing and then a VM to host the 
| applications they need to run. This stuff works really well."
