[phenixbb] Phenix.refine in WinXP?

You could, of course, always install virtualbox
(http://www.virtualbox.org/) for free and then run phenix (etc) from
within a Linux virtual machine.  I do the reverse (WinXP virtual
machine under Ubuntu) for running the few Windows programs for which
there is no good Linux equivalent - it is brilliant.



P.S. Perhaps it would be easier for the phenix dev team to make and
distribute a Linux virtual image with phenix pre-installed, rather
than try to support Windows natively?
