I did that before moving all my desktop stuff to Mac OS X almost
ten years ago.

I have XP Pro and Win7 running under VMware Fusion when I need to
test something or write documentation for Windows, and a CentOS 5
VM as well that I use primarily for writing when I'm away from my
office where I do that directly on one of the many Linux servers.

I was using a Windows program to edit ACBL Convention Cards for
duplicate bridge until I found the bridgewinners.com site which
has a very nice on-line editor.

This brings me to my major non-Linux activity these days.  I
started playing duplicate bridge again 2 years ago after a 43
year hiatus, and am about 1/3 of the way to Life Master.

Government goes into business it can always shift its losses to the
taxpayers.  Government never makes ends meet -- and that is the first
requisite of business. -- Thomas Edison
