When I finally get around to installing freebsd, if I can remember.
What do you do when you need to run a Windows lazarus program?

My biggest gripe with bsd/linux is that I'd constantly have to switch 
back to Windows/MacOSX to do testing as those are the major platforms to 
sell apps on. So if I switch to BSD I'd likely end up just having to run 
Windows inside bsd in an emulator anyway. Catch22.  You ever run lazarus 
inside a windows emulator inside bsd? that's likely what I'd end up 
doing, or compiling for windows inside bsd then testing the app in a 
windows emulator. I'm not sure what the emulators/virtualbox's are 
available for bsd.
