Hi i would like to run Linux on windows 7.. I cannot make partitions that's why i can't make my computer dual boot. So whats the better virtualization software to run my opensuse with full kde under windows operating system?
Except that the EULA says you're not allowed, or was that only Vista? Heck I was trying to google it and came up with answers ranging from yes, no, one vm, up to 4 vms. Anyone have a copy of the Windows 7 Eula? Doesn't it say something to the effect that it's supposed to be the only OS on the machine? Looking for a straight answer..

In terms of rank:
3. VMWare Desktop
By what characteristic(s) are these ranked? Performance? Ease-of-use? Features? Security? Maintainability? Stability? Documentation?
Usually there is no outright "best-of-breed" software, only "horses for courses" and the response to "Which is the best ***?" is not an answer but further questions: "What do you want to use it for?", "What are you areas and levels of expertise?", "What environment are you using?" etc.
Perhaps we can evolve a matrix listing the various virtualisation products against their particular strengths and weaknesses. Few of us have in-depth experience of more than one product so it may not be easy. For example all I know is that VirtualBox has more ease-of-use and better documentation than KVM (I gave up trying to set up KVM).
