    Virtual Machines

    Hi, I have Windows and SUSE Linux installed on my desktop at home, does anyone recommend a virtual machine were I can control Windows inside Linux than isn’t VMware.

    Thanks

    Xen (needs a Vanderpool or Pacifica CPU for windows)
    Xen's been included with SuSE for years.

    I found VirtualBox easier to set up. It has the advantage that it runs under both Linux and Windows. If you just want to have a Linux box to tinker with, you might do just as well to run VirtualBox on Windows and set up a bunch of Linux VMs. I run VirtualBox under Ubuntu Linux at home for development servers, and plan to be able to switch VMs between my Linux and Windows machines when I've upgraded my Windows machine a bit.

    I used Xen at work because it was available under the GPL if compiled from source, hence we didn't have to pay for it.
