I'd like to vote, but the poll is closed (as are any others). I presume you's open them once the New Year in the US has started? In Europe and Asia it's already Jan 1. ;)

jeremy 12-31-2007 06:50 PM

As the announcement mentions, voting does not open for a few days.


Dutch Master 12-31-2007 08:52 PM

I missed the announcement, sorry!

Should really rename KVM to "Kernel-based Virtual Machine" so it doesn't cause confusion with the more known term KVM, Keyboard, Video, Mouse switch.. ;)

Ammad 12-31-2007 09:47 PM

My vote is for VMware, that is now free, and if your CPU doesn't support VT, stil you are able to run guest OS...

What about BrandZ ?

jeremy 01-01-2008 09:27 AM

BrandZ seems a bit too Solaris specific to be included.


jlliagre 01-01-2008 01:30 PM

BrandZ indeed requires an underlying Solaris kernel but virtualizes Linux distributions at the O/S level. Very similar to OpenVZ which is in the list.

jeremy 01-01-2008 09:17 PM

OpenVZ is built on Linux though, so is much more appropriate for this site.

I would have to agree with that. I tried a few, and found this product quite reliable, great online and e-tech support / forums.

anticapitalista 01-05-2008 05:56 PM

VirtualBox for me too.
