Our step-by-step tutorials make it easy to run XP, Vista and Ubuntu on the same PC without dualbooting ... all using Sun VirtualBox which means it's 100% free!
So you want to try out a different operating system, but you don't want the hassle of installing it onto your system directly, and risk screwing up your current OS?
Virtualization is what you need. It's a way to run an operating system within a window of your current operating system. For example, you can run Vista in a window of XP. Or, if you want to try out Linux, you could run Linux within Vista.
Some of the most popular names in virtualization include VMWare, Xensource and Parallels. But we've put together a series of tutorials using Sun VirtualBox -- a great, new platform for virtualizing a wide array of operating systems. It's powerful, flexible and completely free, and because it's fully cross-platform, you can easily apply your skills across many different systems.
We've done all the hard yards to bring you detailed step-by-step tutorials with screenshots so that you can get up and running with OS virtualization in no time.
