Thanks Tom. You're right, it's not exactly the same thing, but a data
point is a data point. Like I said, I'd prefer that we run Linux
myself, but we're almost exclusively a Windows shop right now. We're
going to run a Tomcat app server on the server (virtual or otherwise)
in addition to Subversion, so I may have to bump the RAM allocation to
512MB, at least until I can collect stats that indicate we can get by
on less.
