ZFS is pretty cool, yes, but not really a solution to my problem.

comment Sharing VirtualBox snapshots
I meant if it was possible to export the snapshots incrementally, such that you don't need to transport the entire appliance (which is ~4GB). I will clarify the question.

VS2005 actually is compatible with Windows 7, I just misunderstood how to install the patch to SP1 for Vista.

Switching VS-versions is not something we can do lightly; we need to do it (as I understand it) more or less on a company-wide basis. We are, however, in the process of switching to VS2008, but I still need to be able to build with VS2005 now and then.

comment Aptitude keeps saying package installed when it was removed and purged
Why is that a no-no? They both use the same database, and probably share a substantial amount of code.
