Does anyone use virtual machine and wich one is the best and user friendly to use?
Thanks in advance
I use them all the time. VMware player is hard to beat for a windows host. On Linux I like to use Virtual Box.
I've used VMWare before, it's great; although I just use my laptop to run automated tasks.
Haha,, probably the longest reply i have ever seen
but on the topic: i use parallels desktop on my mac... So far it has been pretty good.
I use Parallels. But I think it's only for OSX.
I've used VMware Workstation on my laptop...it's definitely a great tool for home usage. Been playing with ESX server from VMware at work for over a year now...if you have access to server's it is definitely the way to go.
VMware is one of the best, VirtualBox has nice features (RDP connection and headless operation), but I appriciate Qemu, as it is almost multiplatform, easy to hack, and has fuss-less installation.
I use Virtual PC, runs well enough and is free, can't complain at all.
One tip is that you should put your virtual machines on a seperate harddisk to your host OS
Separate names with a comma.
