    VMWare Fusion

    Hello

    I would like to try out VMWare fusion as its isnt expensive but I could do with a bit of help from you guys please.

    I want to use it with an install of latest Ubuntu and Im not sure if this will work or indeed how to go about it? I was going to use Windows XP but could use Windows 7 if needed.

    Really, any help will be good

    Thanks

    Re: A new boy wanting to try virtualisation

    What, specifically, is your question?
    Perhaps if you tell us your hostOS and the clientOS(es) you intend to run?

    I thought Fusion was only for OSX hosts. I could be wrong. It is commercial.
    Normally, if you want to run a desktop clientOS with Ubuntu Desktop as the hostOS, VirtualBox would be the recommendation here. VBox is F/LOSS and in the Ubuntu repos.

    VirtualBox

    Try VirtualBox, it works well and is Free/Open Source Software (as long as Oracle lets it be).

    It can do both 32-bit and 64-bit, but if you want to try ARM, PPC, MIPS or Sparc then you'll have to try Qemu as VirtualBox is limited to x86.
