Emulator for Linux?


Hey everyone here at LQ recently i have been working with one of my programming friends who lives over in NZ and have been using a combo of Wine and Teamviewer which has so far been good but having errors like random quiting.

So i decided to try and find an emulator but haven't had much luck so if someone could point me to one that would be awesome

cheers

PS im using Debian/GNU etch 4

Try VirtualBox instead:
http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

You can use it for free. VMware Desktop isn't available for free. VirtualBox works nicely, even networking over wireless links.

As mentioned earlier , VirtualBox is a very good option but there are other options available too, similar to virtualbox. BTW you can get VMWare Server and try it out here,
http://www.vmware.com/download/server/

Just register there and grab your license/reg key, its free. Hope it helps...
