Well, my main interest is in running MS Windows (as many versions as possible) 
on my Linux box for gaming and development purposes - eg, rewriting various 
bits and pieces of DOOM and Quake etc, using MinGW, etc, testing new and 
up-and-coming F/LOS OSes such as ReactOS and Syllable, and suchlike.
