There was a recent thread on the BBLisa mailing list about Windows
training, and the most common suggestion was to avoid buying hardware
for testing and training and instead just set up Amazon EC2 instances
for anything you need.

I think that set up makes sense in your situation as well.


alright brain, you don't like me, and i don't like you... lets just do
