    Question Pop-out Windows

    I saw this in a link one time, but I can't remember which virtualization software they were running on Ubuntu.

    You could have the windows in the VM go to the actual panel in Gnome, so it looks like it's running from Linux, but it is actually running in the VM (be it VirtualBox or VMWare).

    Any ideas?

    Is this what you're looking for?

    I just use Virtualbox with Win2K. Once the VM is running, I mash Right<crtl> + L and it switches to a different seamless mode. The Windows desktop disappears and the taskbar is left covering the bottom of the screen (in my case, the bottom Gnome taskbar on desktop 2). The way I use doesn't theme the Windows windows to my Gnome theme, but it doesn't matter much to me since it's not on my main desktop (it's on the 2nd desktop) and I don't use it much anyway.

    You can do just about anything you wish in VMware... I use five desktops and both Windows and Ubuntu can be seen and used in the same desktop. Notice all the layers in the attachment.

    I believe that is what I am looking for. I'll have to try this at home.

    Thanks for the reply.
