    I commonly virtualize Linux, BSD, SkyOS, ReactOS, Syllable, and various other operating systems for testing and personal interests. VirtualBox, Virtual PC, VMware, QEMU with KQEMU accelerator, etc. - some platforms respond better to certain hardware virtualization implementations.

    As of late, I have considered attempting the installation of a Plan 9 distributed computing system across multiple virtualized servers.

    I am using the beta version of Windows VM and have tried VMWare Player. Can't say I find a speed difference in them.

    Yup you can make snapshots before you make changes and revert back to the old snapshots if you dont like what it does. Great for making images!!

    And the cool thing is you can back up the entire VMDK file.

    I had tremendous slow downs in Virtual PC. I ran VMware and I was like, HOLY CRAP! Way faster!

    I tried installing Virtul Box here on this computer with VMware and didn't work. I think it's because of VMware's services etc. However, I did install it to Vista without a hitch.

    Yeah, done lots of different OSes with either Virtual PC or VirtualBox.

    The only issue is that it has it shares resources, so a resource intensive OD will make BOTH of the OSes run sluggishly. So, IMO< best to only run those OSes virtually that you know will use low amounts of system resources.

    Good for checking out specific features of alternative OSes, though.

    Cheers

    Yes, I use DSL or freespire in Vmware.

    Then there's back-track and some other stuff...
