  • I recently installed WinXP as a virtual machine using VMWare Player on my home Linux machine. It's quite remarkable and makes testing Perl on both platforms much easier. (Still stuck with the work-issued WinXP laptop, though.)

    You might experiment with it and see if it might give you more flexibility. Even a virtual XP on XP might let you do what you need as a different user without interrupting things going on in the main OS.

      This is definitely interesting. If I were not lazy enough to try it, I would have installed Linux on the laptop too, and would be working mostly with it. See above re laziness. Actually my home pc is a mess and I've been wanting to work on it for months, failing to do so for quite about the same period.
