Thanks for your alternative solutions.
I do consider your suggestion about the JVM.
If you don't have the resources to get a dedicated Linux box, get a VM.
It is more because of IT Polices, enforcement of Group polices on linux.
Oracle Virtual Box is free and has some pre-built development stacks that might help you get started.
Thanks for the suggestion, But not sure of virtual box for day to day usage in development.
Can you/anyone look at java.io.File customization, that should not be much of impact.
