Fred, thanks for taking the time to reply. I really do appreciate it.

I doubt that we will dual boot, or even go over to Linux, much as the
developers would like to, purely because the company insists on Outlook
for email, etc  :-(

In other companies, I have ended up using VMware, as you suggest.

I will look into that and look into building a windows-native port of

With best wishes,

Here are two comments that don't really answer your question.

1. I have a laptop that I wanted to have Windows on for networking.  I 
got ddd working under cygwin, but it was so slow that it was almost 
unusable.  I then set up a dual boot with ubuntu.  This was very easy to

do (at least for one familiar with Linux).

2. It seems to me that it is a much bigger step to go from a development

platform in Windows to that in cygwin, than the step from cygwin to a 
dual boot with ubuntu.  Thus if they were to allow you to do the former 
they should be willing to let you do the latter.  In your case you would

probably want to set everything up using a virtual machine such as
