good vm candidate?

Seems like a good candidate for running in a VM. I found that FatDog64 is all 64bit. I'm downloading and will check how well this might work for a commercial software build environment. I really don't need that much, just basic 64bit but with a c++11 capable compiler.

That might be a good subject for a small article on this site. I will be curious about your results.

I will soon be migrating my system from a single OS to a VM environment with many small single-purpose VMs, so I am interested in lightweight, small footprint OSes. Even more than usual. ;^)
