Senator Pacheco is a cheap bitch

Senator Mark Pacheco from Massachusetts is going for great lenghts to hamper the deployment of ODF in his state. His main motivations seems to be a donation of $600 from a Microsoft lobbyists.
I didn't know that american politicians are that cheap but maybe the EFF could afford a few to counter the influence of the big corporations.

Mini-HOWTO: Mess up your system with VMWare.

I accidently did this once with Linux and you shouldn't try this at home, kids.

1. Install VMWare.
2. Create a new virtual machine and allow it to access the harddisk directly.
3. Start the virtual machine.
4. Boot the operating system you are already running inside the virtual machine.
(Your boatloader will probably do this after some seconds.)
5. Optional, for additional chaos: Let both the guest and the host system write some files on the same partition.
6. Two operating systems accessing the same partition at the same time leads to severe corrpution of the filesystem.
BOOMMM!

If you are lucky you can repair the damaged filesystems with a LiveCD.
