Lightbulb Forum / HCL Forum for VMWare/VirtualPC


I run Mandrake 9.2 in a VMWare session, and have met several other doing the same with various releases of Linux. I think I would find it particularly useful to have a forum dedicated to running Linux in VMWare/VirtualPC sessions.

Thanks

Personally, I don't think we get the amount of traffic here which would make this viable. VMWare, etc questions fit nicely in Linux-Software.

I was under the impression that "Linux - Software" was for software running in Linux.
I run VMWare in WinXP, so I figured that would be off-topic.

hmmm, yes, sort of. If the problem you are having is a VMWare issue over linux software, I'd say put it in there. If it's VMWare specific under Xp, it goes in General.

A very fine line, a grey area if you will......
