Jerry discusses various virtualization tools such as VMWare, VirtualBox, etc.


Jerry will discuss the various ways one can use virtualization on your desktop or laptop computer. We will discuss the various virtualization software that you can obtain for Linux, Windows, and Macintosh computers. We will also discuss some of the pros and cons of virtualization. And why you might want to run Windows in a virtualized environment rather than WINE or CrossoverOffice. We'll also discuss some Linux advantages for being the Host OS.
