Andrew Allemann over at Domain Name Wire has been researching the hoops GoDaddy jumps through to keep its shady tactics out of public view: `The Go Daddy Group, which runs the world's largest domain name registrar, is warehousing its customers' expired domain names and profiting from them. The company has taken a number of steps to hide this practice from public view. This article covers the results of a Domain Name Wire investigation into GoDaddy's domain warehousing activities.'"

Someone above mentioned having the alternative of a Linux build on the PC with Windows running in a virtual machine. In my place at least, that wouldn't wash as the firm has a custom desktop build that I expect would have a few problems running in vmware.
Is your custom desktop build tied to specific hardware or something? What makes you think it would not run in a VM?
