Explain how I install P4win on my Linux box again? The biggest
advantage to P4V is that it works on *all* platforms while p4win only
works on Windows. Using P4V means that I use Perforce the same way
whether I am on my Linux box or on my Windows box.
>> If your Perforce client work space is located on a filer (Network
Appliance or alike), or using Samba, you can see your client files in
both Linux and Windows, and use P4win (or P4v) from Windows using
AltRoot field in your client spec setting.
