Those are emulators, not virtual machines

Mark7 01-09-2009 05:17 PM

In that case, how about an emulator of the year poll? ;)

V-box.

VirtualBox allows me to run the stuff I need that Wine cannot handle.

divyashree 01-11-2009 11:21 AM

vmware is the easiest one

Virtualbox, not for running windows, but for testing out other linux distros.

virtualisation of the year
 
Vbox has to take the Oscars as it has come on in leaps for ease of use on open source. Ubuntu must have had a relationship with them in the past as it was easy to install on but other flavours of linux meant you had to do the trawling thing.Then get 'n' number of error messages and hve to worry the likes of yourselves.

I use kvm on all servers and desktops (qemu/virtualbox where the cpu doesn't have the instructions)
