I think we have diverged from the original message. The comment was
that the OpenSource contest provides the 'Winner' with Euro300. That
will not go far for developing but just might pay for one or two folks
to come to WineConf when it is held in Europe. Great use for these
funds as well as what happens to most of the monetary donations. I
would ask Ge if he can use another system or two. Maybe setting up a
secondary testbot in the US/Asia with a sync function to the primary
testbot in the background to keep job statuses consistent. I don't have
the resources to host such a system, but if we 'buy' systems that will
do this, this should help.
And yes, there is nothing close to what Wine does. Virtual systems are
great, but you have to own the original software to use them.
