I assume you mean that you haven't been able to test this on *nix. If
not, ignore most of what I have written below :)

There are a couple of options here.
As an Apache committer, you can apply for a full MSDN license. This
should come up again shortly as the current licenses expire in November.
You could then use MS's virtual server.

I use VMWare Workstation (which you have to pay for) but VMWare server
is available for free and should do what you need to do to test stuff on
