Virtualization Technology

            Yesterday I elaborated on the World of Linux, a really great operating system that is absolutely free. You don't have to pay a small fortune to have a great operating system for your computer. There are a lot of really great option's out there. Some people may already know this. There is yet another option to trying Linux instead of downloading the ISO file and burning it to disk. You can try Virtualization, really wonderful technology. There are a few really great options for this, there is Vmware and the Vmware Player, which can be found here: http://www.vmware.com/products/player/  This is a really great product. They have all of the documentation that you need to be up and running this great software in no time. They also have what they call Vmware Virtual Appliances, pre made virtual machines, which can be found here: http://www.vmware.com/appliances/   

               There is another option besides Vmware to try different operating system's. You can use Virtual Box, which can be found here: http://www.virtualbox.org/ They have some pre made appliances located here: http://virtualboximages.com/ There are some really great places out there to find virtualization. For Vmware you can also visit the following websites: http://www.thoughtpolice.co.uk/vmware/ and one of my personal favorites is this website: http://bagside.com/bagvapp/ I think that the people at the last website truly make some of the best. There is one more place that I cannot forget about, actually maybe two, one is a place to make your own virtual machine files which can be found here: http://www.easyvmx.com/  Last, but not least, and another one of my personal favorite places can be found here: http://susestudio.com/  At the latter you can build your own iso file, virtual machine, or even a file that can be burned to a usb flash drive. I really enjoy modern technology, it's absolutely wonderful.
