Good suggestion. I suppose this one is worth a try. I will check it
out. But, it has one small thing not in its favor. Just as many people
will not use Virtual PC because it is a Microsoft Product, Virtualbox is
a Sun product, now, and that turns some people off. Sun talks a good
story about contributions to free and open source*, but they don't
always measure up to their own hype. IMO. YMMV.
* Although, Virtualbox is GPL'd.
** I suppose a lot more of this type of discussion, and we should take
it to a different list or forum. It's kinda got off-topic, which is
about setting up a build environment for Rockbox. No longer appropriate
