If I could permanently leave the Windows world behind then I would have done so long ago. Unfortunately in my position (Motorola communications technician) there are many proprietary Windows-only apps which are required for me to perform my duties; this is really the only reason I ended up dual-booting Debian (Etch) and WinXP. I'm now experimenting with using those apps in a VMWare XP image, but time constraints keep me from researching the issue as much as I'd like. I hope one day to successfully use those proprietary apps in VMWare or VirtualBox - then I can finally get rid of my XP partition.
