OSNews, Generic OSes "Believe it or not, you don't need to purchase Win4Lin or Virtual PC to easily access your old Windows OS that you still find yourself relying on. As a matter of fact, if you already own a Windows machine, you're already halfway there. Enter the headless PC. Today, I'm going to share with you a technique that I feel has been lost, thanks in part to virtual PC options, such as VMware and Win4Lin. It's a utility that many of you may even still use to this very day - VNC."

Don't just use two PCs but also two Monitors, Mices, and keyboards. It has the advantage that your "virtualized" windows machine will run at native speed even with 3d acceleration.

Man, get with the program. Use http://synergy2.sourceforge.net to share one mouse and KB between the comptuers. Here at work, I have a Linux Desktop and a Windows Desktop. One KB and mouse, three monitors (2 on Linux machine, 1 on windows machine). And (this is the best part), you can cut and paste text between the machines.
