Ubuntu Guides, Tweaks & Hacks for Your Dell Inspiron 1501
How's the performance? Things run pretty snappy?
it's pretty good.
All you need to get vmware server running is apt-get install vmware-server from the Canonical COMMERCIAL repository. deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu feisty-commercial main
for the most part, true, although the newest version release isnt in the repositories yet
also of note is VirtualBox by Innotek...a newer, open-source virtual machine softwareruns well, and their site has a .deb of the newest release
I've got Virtualbox installed on my 1501 with XP-MCE 2005 running as a virtual machine. With the "guest additions" installed you can run the virtal machine fullscreen, and other than seeing a slight delay you'd never know that XP was running from within Ubuntu. :D
