Wouldn't this depend on the application? Unless it's a server-only
product, seems to me that we can run the software on our workstation
and also run our authoring tool with it. I have never had the luxury
of running two PCs. If it's a server product, I go to the testing
room to document it, then return to my office to write.
An interesting subject....I look forward to reading the responses.
