OpenStep, GNUstep

After almost 8 years (we talked about it, of course), a new version of the GNUSTEP live CD has been released - version 2.5, for amd64. The live CD is based on Debian 9, has low hardware requirements, and uses Linux 4.9 with compressed RAM and no systemd. The live CD is a very easy and non-destructive way of testing out and playing with GNUSTEP, a free software implementation of OPENSTEP.

It's been a long, long time since I got to use our glorious *STEP database category. Isn't that one beautiful icon?

Virtual PC only supports emulation of a 32 bit processor. Try Virtual Box. This trips up a lot of people.

Our up stream produces up VM's in VirtualPC format for integration testing of services, and so we still need VPC hanging about. It's a crappy VM to be honest. The version that integrates in to Windows 7 is very basic, I always try to use the 2007 distro as this at least runs as a program rather than a half arsed partly integrated Explorer extension. The integrated version only needed to really run XP, so it definitely does not support anything other than 32-bit.
