I'm not sure if some of the recent fixes will make much difference,
but I have found
you get waaaay more bang for buck performance wise out of a linux
mapguide server
than a windows one ( and i'm not talking bout license fees, hehe)

It seems (anecdotally) that the linux version will use the full
capacity of the server
whereas on windows it never quite does that...

So with regards to setting up a linux sandbox in svn for working on
this, can we
look at the process, because to date we haven't progressed much on this, ie
like with the Cmake stuff which Helio was working on...
