As like many blackhatters, I have been paying for a dedicated server running Ubuntu Server as well as paying $60/mo for a 4GB memory (100MB) Windows server for running GSA, Xrumer, Scrapebox and UD. Since dedicated servers are coming with more memory now for a reasonable price I thought it would be nice if I could run a Windows VM on my linux box and eliminate my Windows server. In my case I actually upgraded to a 1GB connection and now am running everything from a single server with 2 Xeon E5 CPU and 32GB Memory. Setting it all up was surprisingly easy on Ubuntu Server 12.04, I just had to: apt-get install xrdp unity-2d and then: gdm restart This will install an open source remote desktop server on your system. You can then use "Cord" (OSX) or the windows remote desktop client to connect to your server desktop. After that I followed the directions at this link for installing VMware Player: (Couldnt post the link, but it is on howtogeek titled "Run windows in ubuntu with vmware player") I am running my VM with 6GB memory and everything is running really fast. I thought other people may be interested in going this route and trim their server bills.
