TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
As some articles state, VMware (especially the free VMware Server or Player)
are pretty decent workarounds. I use WinXP in a VMware Player VM on a daily
basis to run FrameMaker and other stuff. The only real requirement is more
RAM - minimum 512MB, recommended 768MB or above (especially if you're
running KDE or GNOME as your desktop manager).
Virtualbox (http://www.virtualbox.org/ ), the new open-source competitor to
VMware, can also run Windows, and may be a good alternative.

The trouble with young writers is that they are all in their sixties.
