How rugged is anything? .... I just erased my rant, Best regards, Cleve
ps, do you really still have the mk5cf29? Great little computer
What rant? You posted a rant and I missed it? I feel gypped!!!!
The CF-29 Mk5? Nah, I sold it a few months ago to the Smithsonian as the first documented CF-29 with over 2GB of RAM.... , but yeah, it was a great computer and got me through a lot! I liked it so much I took pictures of it the day I sold it.
I haven't found my ideal strategy yet. Dual-booting always leaves me wanting, when one of the partitions ends up not being big enough, or I want to have one or more of the environments on another machine and don't want to duplicate the setup effort. I haven't even tried to set up a dual-boot on a UEFI/GPT machine, and wouldn't want to think about what dragons there be on that road.
I mostly run VMs nowadays, with my older machines dedicated to one OS or another. That mostly works except when an OS needs certain kinds of direct hardware access (e.g., for gaming, or to do precise color calibration on a graphics card/monitor)....
I have never been a big VM guy, I usually one as a sandbox for testing, but other then that, I have never had a personal use for it.
