as it's virtualization platform.

I'd still like to hear from a Tom Lane or someone else on the project with what
X86 or X86_64 OS's we need coverage for.



VMWare Server is indeed a fine product, which I use extensively.

I am not sure what our Windows support is like for x86_64. Magnus has one for MSVC (for which buildfarm support is nearly done, but not quite). But I don't see one for MinGW. OTOH, Windows is not free (in either sense) and setting up a build environment there is quite a bit harder than on Unix platforms.
If someone wants to supply the appropriate licenses, I would be willing to run
windows VM's on this beast.  I don't have the free cash to pony up the licenses.



The other platform I've whined about missing for some time is HP-UX, especially on PA-RISC. But that's a whole different story.
I'm seeing if I can use some HP-UX boxes I have at the office to supply
HP-UX 11.11 PA-800's.  No guarantees at this point, but I am asking.


cheers
