Fair enough. I can't imagine a host these days that doesn't give you a
dedicated VM sandbox though. There are hosts out there that put all the

People really use Windows for a mySQL server? Weird.
It just seems so clunky. Don't get me wrong. I love XP. I run it on all my
12+ notebooks, netbooks, desktops, etc. But for any LAMP dev work, I either
have a dedicated Linux box setup or a Virtual Machine.
