OT: Virtual PC vs "Real" PC

A couple of points:

Dont get xp home edition to develop.

Try the XP theme, quit RR then try the W98/2000 theme. 
Dont use BMPs for images (last lesson learned from Pie Control)

To try different versions of RR (and or themes), 
just create different users in XP. 

Just remember not to use the same files across 2 different
RR applications or use the same RR app by two users at the
same time - unless you like trouble...

And with RR, you dont need MS software, you just write your
own office anyway dont you? ;)
