Heehee... just got RedHat 8 (circa 2002ish) running on my Mac - it runs faster than the old machine I had it on.
Then got Kylix running under the virtual... a delightful thing to see Kylix running on my Mac.
Then compiled a web application in it, fired it up as a shared object under Apache and it flew...
All of this in an effort to bring the last bit of compiled legacy code I have under my current development umbrella. Kylix was actually never certified for anything beyond RedHat 7.2, so trying to get this stuff to run on anything contemporary is just that side of impossible.
My goal now is to create a complete disk image that I can run under Parallels on a little box in my cage... I am told by the Parallels folks that my drive image created on the Mac should operate just fine on a little Linux box. If so, I can create and "wrap up" this legacy stuff in an easily backupable package and start to do some serious rewrites.
Ah. Of course this thread is meaningless to just about everyone else here except Jammaster, but I just needed to share
