Did you hear? A while back SWsoft decided to change its name to that of its partner company, Parallels. Parallels makes a commercial product very similar to VMware Server... but it seems to be most popular on the Mac. With SWsoft's Virtuozzo and their sponsoring of the OpenVZ project, is it any wonder that there would be a hybrid product that tries to compete with VMware ESX?

I haven't had a chance to watch the full video yet, and although it is mostly of a commercial nature, it advances discussion about Virtualization so I'm sharing it. They had it as a Windows Media file on their site and I've converted it to Flash so Linux users will have an easier viewing time.

Parallels

I tried Parallels on my MacBook last summer. There was a free 30 day trial at the time. Paralles does a very nice job with Virtualization. A license to use the software is around $80. My thought at the time; for 80 bucks, if I really need to use Windows, I can turn on another computer.

I've sense moved on to VirtualBox. VirtualBox is free, & freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). The folks at VirtualBox have integration down now too. Once you install the guest additions, you can move your cursor from host to guest without using Ctrl & click.

When I first got into virtualization I was trying to figure out how to run Windows on top of my Apple. Now I use it to test different flavours of Linux!

One question though. Does anyone know how to share a virtual machine with other users on the same computer? I've tried to create virtual disks in shared folders and that doesn't seam to work.
