Thanks... But you sort of miss what we are looking for... Although we could have made it a little clearer.... Wwe're looking fot the ability to simultaneously build/test across multiple platforms if required... as well as to be able to speed up the build/test process... A VM type of app runs across one machine, we'd still require multiple machines... What we really need is the ability to access a bunch of machines (ala a compile farm) across the 'net. Hard to believe nobody else has had this need, or that there's no place we can turn to find a group of machines for this purpose...
