  • and another VM engine

    just received this via mail... check thos out

    A supported host operating system. Presently, we support 32-bit Windows (primarily XP) and many Linux distributions. Support for 64-bit operating systems is progressing, but not yet stable; the same applies to Mac OS X hosts.

        WOW installed xp and it boots in 10 seconds i think they use kind of snapshot to make this fast boot... or some other trick

        ok now i am installing vista rtm and ill post updates...

        EDIT:
        ok finished the installation...

        i am very suprised about the great performance...

          Re: and another VM engine

          Yaniv - Are you running this on a linux host or a windows host?

          Would be interested to see if anyone has tried the windows version.

          Also what is the spec of your host?

          Michael

          P.s. Excellant find by the way. I wonder if David has any comments about it

              Cool - Might have to give this a try when I get home.

              How do you think it compares with VS 2005 R2?

                as you can see in the list supported guest's i thing it's supporting more OS's then the MS version... but i am not sure what guest's the MS version is supporting...

                  From reading their documents I think it should be compared with MS VPC, and not with VS R2.

                  I wonder how large are their drives (for example a brand new XP SP2 installation).

                    I wonder how large are their drives (for example a brand new XP SP2 installation).
                    it should be same size like every other xpsp2 installation...
                    ill check tomorrow at work the size and i tell you...

                    what i have done is creating the HDD for the guest with dynamic so it will be maximum the size you decided but its not using that size from the begining so it will grow with the amount of data you copy/install SF on your guest.
