I use Vista on my day-to-day working computer. With the FreeRunner it's
faster to boot to an Ubuntu live CD and work on the FreeRunner and reboot in
Vista for my regular work. I can flash the device a couple of times and
experiment with QTopia and OM 2008.8 in the time is would take me to just
flash the rootfs for either of those. I think the dfu for windows would
benefit from some work. I tried running Ubunto in a VMWare virtual machine
but couldn't get a good connection to the FreeRunner.
