Yes but it will be same OS, so it should be simple copy and a bit of tweaking with packages and then changing IP in DNS..

So nothing horrible..

I still got my eyes on that 8GB RAM quad core with 2x 1TB disks.

It will be expensive first year, but for second year it can be cheaper- $170 is setup fee.

And with a bit creativity with my taxes, I could get rid of it's value added tax and slash price for second year to $850 or 580Ôé¼

Which is imo fine for such powerful machine.

If Spring community finances third to half of that im fine sponsoring the rest!

Its a bug that only happens on some 64bit linux kernels as I understand, virtual box just wastes nearly half of one core.

Is this fix in any way related to the Spring site now taking 10 minutes to load any page?

Mono is a cross platform .NET implementation, can't you use that?

also, why does the server need a mission editor? this is a client tool?
