Try a Linux Distribution on VMWare

Knoppix Inside Windows 7 and VMWare Player


Yeah!  This is what I had Planned for 

Yesterday's Post.

I have to admit this form of Virtualization is

Super Simple.

And with All the Distros 

(That's Linux-Talk for distributions or flavors)

of Linux, there is no reason why 
you shouldn't try one. 

Here's A Gteat a Great Site to
Help You Find One!!!

MilaX 0.5, an OpenSolaris-based mini-distribution which 
runs completely off a CD or a USB pendrive: 

"MilaX 0.5 released.

Twitter, Facebook and other sites are working well. 
Fast start: boot live CD (live USB), configure network 

(Menu -> Setup -> Net Setup), run zfsinstall, reboot

and enjoy. 

Two add-ons are available for this version... MilaX is released under the CDDL license version 1. Version 0.5
