VMware and VirtualPC (unless Microsoft bought it) are doing their job
pretty good, at least for my needs.

thanks for the tip - yes, I've already read the svk site and FAQ.
but I'm lazy (I like the Tortoise tool), don't like perl (not typesafe,
slow, etc)
and its version number (0.09) doesn't make me too confident
to put my data in :-)
But ofcourse I will keep an eye on the svk project too.
