Well the Linux-box is great and I'm not yet getting my first own Mac, 
since PowerBook Titanium is still too expensive. The Linux-box has 
been my firewall and server, but I'm moving in near future to another 
country and also to a smaller place, where I will not have the luxury 
of space or a network connection. So my Linux-box would be most of the 
time unused, still I would like to run some services from time to time 
on Linux - just to test that everything works and keep memory fresh.

I tried to run Redhat 7.3 now on Virtual PC and it seems ok, as long 
as I keep out of XFree ,-) Have to keep testing and setup something 
evil just for fun. If nothing else, during this trial period is 
atleast a possibility to take nice screenshots.
