For a purely desktop oriented virtual environment ... if you find that

binding and unbinding the drive is too much of a hassle, you might

is really shouldn't be. it's just a couple of menubar clicks...

Not a problem if you warez everything to begin with so everything is

iso's. ;) j/k

That's actually how I do most of it (hackintosh and whatnot) but I actually PURCHASED my treo 680 and it came with an honest to god CD with software that I OWN.
I own very little software.

For my daily tasks, I think I'm done. I got it so when I log in, it fires up my XP vm (which I sync my phone with) my pandora vm (which apparently vmware player doesn't recognize sound device, but workstation does) I like player better because I like each vm being in a separate window and workstation makes that really annoying to pull off.
But the machine is rock solid, fast and does everything I do on a daily basis.
I found that cdex works perfectly in wine. Go cdex.
I haven't tried to copy a movie yet, but that shouldn't be a big deal.

So I'm not a zealot, but I find I can actually manage rather well with a linux desktop.
If I have a lot of vm's running. :-)

Oh yeah, there's another vm so I can vpn to work.

yeah, that's what's been preventing me from going fully 64-bit.. I don't want a VM just to VPN. Lisa's office finally upgraded their client to something more portable, so I might be able to make the switch now for both of my home machines. A while back, I browbeated my SA's into doing something special on my VPN account, so I've been 64-bit ready, but she hasn't ;)

I can't not use a VM to vpn in (all I do is remote desktop anyway) and I don't want the vpn client getting anywhere near my real machine's connectivity.

maybe not a bad idea. some of the popular clients install a $hit-ton of drivers.

Our vpn client is one of those that takes over your machine so you're on the corp network and THAT'S IT.
Not the kinda ballgame I like to play.

even M$ peepeeteepee does that. but you could probably override it with "route" from the cmdline...

Ummm ... does "THAT'S IT" mean that they run in non split tunnel mode, so if you go to the Internet it first routes it through their network? Or do they just shut off Internet access altogether when you're connected to the VPN?

(You know you're dealing with incompetent and paranoid security people when they follow the model of "make it secure by making it so broken that they can't do anything.")

I'd say carla did a real descend job here:

I started naming stuff as "to intuitive for me" a while ago.

It's been said that the only user interface that is truly "intuitive" is the nipple; everything else has to be learned.

No split tunnel, everything goes through the vpn.
I haven't tried setting a route myself though. I find vmware much more fun. I can just close the window and work goes away.

I'm happy to see that somebody else appreciates the idea that computers are meant to serve the humans not the other way around.

hmmm... the problem with 600 gig disks....
the machine froze on me when I attempted to suspend a vm.
So I shut it off. restarted and the raid software decided the raid array wasn't clean and is now resyncing it.
all 600 gig of it.
I wonder how it knows which one is good.
That said, the machine is still useabe, if slow because of all the disk io.

66 hours of recovery? That's a bit much for 600 gig, no?

You do know that you can cat /proc/mdstat to monitor the recovery progress, right?

yeah, that's where I got the 66 hours from.
I dunno what happened, but after about a half hour, the disk went mostly idle and the syncing went a lot lot faster, only took 3 hours total.
Wish I had run iotop!
