Afraid of trying Linux? No more..


All the people out there who are afraid of trying Linux, just because you are very much used to the Windows, can now try it from within Windows, using some virtualisation technique. And the one I like among them is VitualBox by Sun Microsystems Inc.
Don’t worry by the name of a company associated it is the only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). Using Virtual you can run almost any Linux distribution from within your Windows, never worrying about the consequences, as it will never affect the Windows host on which it is running. And it is a perfectly stable software.
Presently, VirtualBox runs on Windows, Linux, Macintosh and OpenSolaris hosts and supports a large number of guest operating systems including but not limited to Windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4 and 2.6), Solaris and OpenSolaris, and OpenBSD.

Just try Linux, esp. Ubuntu or Open-SUSE, and i’m sure you’ll like it and soon start loving Linux. You can download VirtualBox from-

Now get your hands on a VirtualBox and start your journey to Linux and hence Open-source and know the joy and freedom you get in Linux.To know more about VirtualBox visit-
