Desktop Virtualization creates a separate OS environment on the desktop, allowing a separate opertaing system to run within the host desktop operating system.
It's not often that something completely new comes along, and I have to say that for a while I steered clear of virtualisation thinking that:
- it was too complicated;
- i had no need for it.
However the program VirtualBox seems to make it all so easy.
My talk will cover, what is it? why would you want to use it? and how do you set it up?
