A Virtual Solution for Mobile Development

In my last column, I shared the news that my Dell Latitude simply gave up on me.
Thank you to the one reader who suggested that I could recover things by booting Linux from CD — I would have gladly tried that if the machine would have even POST-ed. She was just dead.
No problem, my company is a Dell reseller ‚Äî we‚Äôll just get another one here pronto and I can move my data over, re-install my compilers and get back to work, right…?
