 So, whatcha gonna do? Leave constructive discussion and split off the
CVS? You dont wanna bother us, just because we're trying to keep FreeMiNT
as clean as possible? Is a special Linux kernel needed to run on the
all-so-great VirtualMachine environments I've been hearing about? A
special version of Windows must be had to make it usable under
VirtualMachine? If not, fix ARAnyM, NOT FreeMINT. And if you flee now, I
will forever consider you a great big coward :)
