Not entirely true.  One could use VMWare Server installed on a
machine with a GUI to create a .vmdk (VMWare's hard disk image file),
install Windows on it, correctly set the RDP and IP settings, and
then move the .vmdk and .vmx file over to the target linux server that will
run the dedicated server.  Licensing is an exercise left to the user.

Unwieldy?  Absolutely.  Worth it for someone who has no access to a Windows
server, but wants to get a server up?  Your mileage may vary.

I'll wait for the binaries.
