Q. What do you recommend for free software that does virtualization on Windows?
A. I tried Virtual Box and VMware Player.
It selected VMware because it worked with more OSes. In Virtual Box both
Ubuntu and Fedora appeared to install but when I entered the user's password
they just hung. Maybe there is a solution for this somewhere out there.
I was able to install both on VMware.
VMware as a feature that seems to automatically install the guest for you.
It answers the questions. But that didn't work for me. And I prefer
picking the options myself. So I picked the option to create a blank OS
and later specified the .iso image as the CD-ROM drive.
Virtual Box lets you run multiple virtual machines simultaneously which is cool.
If VMware player does this, I couldn't find it.
Essential key combos:
Alt-G = control to guest OS
Alt-Ctrl = control to host OS
