Having struck out with KVM and finding Qemu wouldn't load setup, I installed Vbox and now have Win 7 RC1 running in a virtual machine under Kubuntu 9.10. I still have some issues with sound and a few other things to work out, but I'm getting there. Vbox made it very simple.

I wonder what happened to this forum. Did it die a natural death? All my enthusiasms vanished.

Since I was the original poster, here's an update on my situation. I received a free upgrade to Windows 7 from the PC manufacturer so I just upgraded my dual boot and dropped the virtualization. I use the Windows boot so infrequently it's not worth my time to worry about the virtual machine. If disk space was a premium or I used it a lot I might work on it more. For now it's a dead horse. I spend 98% of my time is Kubuntu 64.

I'm currently in school studying networking and have become very interested in virt. Although I am still a novice on both fronts ( Virtualization and Networking ) I believe that, with the help of you all, I have the resources to gain a true understanding of these technologies. I look forward to posting question and receiving answers. Thank you all.

Gratify stronghold in watch that this cerebration is only for feedback consanguineous to the announcement of the increase of a Linux - Virtualization mart here at LQ. Questions most Linux Virtualization should be posted as devoted duds in this marketplace. Thanks.

The virtualization forum would be an appropriate place for cloud related discussion.

Virtualization

Hmmm!!!! I am surprised to see some posters here dissing proprietary software, but plenty mention of a proprietary program VMWare. So it goes to show not all proprietary software is bad, just maybe that it's code is closed and the pricing might be exorbitant. Not interested in replies as to many ongoing debates of proprietary vs opensource, just indicating that there is still a need to use these O/S's and apps. It takes a while to convince a world of other software available, and to use it, so if one is self skilled in all O/S and app areas then constructive comment is of a higher quality when in the argument for and against.

I personally use Ubuntu 11.04 64bit and Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, with Virtualbox running on both systems, giving me access to either of my OS's in the virtual world, when I am running one of them i.e, running Linux, but need access to Windows so use it via VB. I also have full access to my Windows partitions in Ubuntu (thankfully now natively built-in), and likewise in Windows using Linux partition tools, as I also run a dualboot with GRUB 2.0. This gives me the best of all worlds. I am very satisfied with VirtualBox and is no worse or better than other virtualising tools. It does the job for me in my own IT business, and my private life.

Regards

Thumbs up

Thanks for creating such a important Thread and now a days all moved to new technology and this is one of the step towards new technology.
If there is important CBT and little bit basic things that are in video format so it is great for new learner.

Thanks,

I think this thread has had enough off-topic content tacked on for now; I'm closing this, after the removal of a link that has NOTHING to do w/ Linux, or Virtualisation.
