Multicharts on Virtual Machines

I'm planning to replace Windows with Linux as the main OS.

Does anyone run a Linux as a host system with Windows and Multicharts on a virtual machine?

Which Linux distribution?
Which virtual machine?
Do you trade live on that setup?

I plan to use Ubuntu.

Thanks a lot for sharing!

How to run another program from PowerLanguage [SOLVED]

Does anyone know an easy way how I can run a program from inside PowerLanguage?

My Strategy creates csv files. The strategy should send them to my ftp adress using the command line program cURL (http://curl.haxx.se/)

Decimal separator problem exists in Portfolio Backtester too.

Field: Potential Loss Per Contract. If input 0.001 it is saved as 1 when loading the saved portfolio backtester workspace.

Please check also whether the same problem exist with optimizer in portfolio backtester.
