      Description

      Builders

      I see we have:
      *ReactOS: "Test KVM", "Test VBox" and "Test VMW".
      *Windows S2003: "Test WHS".

      Would it be worthwhile to have some other VMs?
      Like:
      *Linux + Wine: we import/modify/create "Wine" (code and) tests.
      \ (Obviously some (km)tests would be skipped there.)
      *Windows XP: some testers(++) (still) use it.
      \ (We don't care some tests do not succeed, but none should crash (the OS).)
      *Windows (7) + Virtual PC: some testers use it.
      \ But mind CORE-8724.
      *(Emulators like) Bochs, PCem (v12): some testers use them.
      \ But they may be too slow?

      These are all environments that I saw used (as a cause or comparison) in issues.
      Wine seems the most interesting, less than but in a similar way to WS2003.
      WXP would be a help to support (some) community people who can't/don't have WS2003.
      The others ("virt/emul") are probably just (would be) nice to have.

      NB:
      If we are short on IT resources, these new VMs (and WHS too, I think) could run less often/priority...
