I've jumped between various virtual machines over the years -- Virtual PC was my go-to choice until Microsoft stopped supporting it and my needs grew beyond Windows emulation. These days VirtualBox and VMWare Player do the job, but a lack of major updates to the former could see the Oracle-owned VM left on the sidelines.
Usenet is a great resource for lots of different things, and we've talked about a number of great apps to use to get the most out of Usenet. Tretflix is a custom, ready-to-install operating system that wraps them all up into an easy-to-use package. All you do is provide the hardware.
A follow-up to our guide last week on running Windows 8 in a virtual machine: Microsoft has officially confirmed that while it's possible to run Windows 8 in Hyper-V, VMware Workstation and VirtualBox, it isn't an option right now in a bunch of older products, including several of its own releases.
If you work with a lot of virtual machines and switch between them frequently, it can be handy to automate the process of launching them. RunMyBox makes it easy to launch specific VirtualBox virtual machines.
Since the release of Windows 7 last week, we've already seen a VMWare Fusion update that runs Windows apps inside OS X with full Aero graphical support. Now Parallels is going head-to-head, offering a similarly slick virtualisation package.
Tech thinker Anil Dash gets "uncharacteristically nerdy" and breaks down the process he used to install Windows 7 in Boot Camp — and then get access to it from OS X, without rebooting, using the free virtualisation software VirtualBox.
If you've been checking out the newest VirtualBox beta for Mac OS X, or you're intrigued by Linux but not ready to deal with virtualizing it, the Sun xVM VirtualBox VDI Index—or, as it's skeevily nicknamed, veeDee-Eyes—has a host of pre-compiled, pre-configured images for you. No need to set up space, "boot" from a live CD and mess around with hardware config, as copies of Fedora, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE and others are ready to run. Not all of them are free, with a few of the multi-GB distros asking for a buck or two to cover server costs, but a good number of interesting variants and betas are there for the taking. VirtualBox runs on Windows, Mac, or Linux, and is a free download. Sun xVM VirtualBox VDI Index
There's no doubt that Linux—particularly Ubuntu—is a killer operating system full of excellent apps, but for about a million reasons, you're stuck running Windows as your main operating system. We understand, these things happen. But what about all those killer Linux apps you've left behind when you decided to live the Windows life? Sure you could dual-boot or run Linux in the confines of a virtual machine window, but wouldn't it be great if you could run those apps side-by-side with your Windows apps—like Linux users can do with WINE or OS X can do with Parallels or VMWare? You can, and today I'll show you how to seamlessly run your favorite Linux applications directly in Windows with a free software called andLinux.
