I'm hoping to have a VA Box there running all these, or at least a
representative sample.

I'll probably have an IBM laptop with some programming stuff on it. I have
metrowerks Code Warrior (not that I've used it much, BxPro and some other stuff
too, all legal BTW).

I hope to have VMWare set up on at least one of these machines. (yea, I know
you have to run windows in there, but I'd be real nervous about demoing WINE
or at least representing it to run very many windows proggies)
