When I first read that Sun’s xVM VirtualBox included Microsoft VHD format support, I booted up an existing Windows VHD I had and started through the fixup process – second boot of the VHD and it was pretty much corrupted. I just tried again with version 2.1.0 and had the same problem (luckily against a copy […]
Just found a project that has a number of premade Sun xVM VirtualBox images at http://virtualbox.wordpress.com (and associated SourceForge project http://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualboximage).
Projects such as ReactOS, Wine and LUK (Linux Unified Kernel – mostly Chinese language material) look viable as a basis for a WIN32-compatible virtual appliance. I’m hoping a liteweight and headless ReactOS exists… just needs to be found
I’d always thought that Singularity might make an interesting managed-code virtual appliance alternative to a Mono-deployment on a JeOS distro, however the license makes this idea a non-starter. Two promising alternatives exist: Cosmos - there is a chunk of work yet to be completed – however I like the lego metaphor! See the Virtual PC example (for an earlier Cosmos build) here. SharpOS – […]
So I’ve been looking at the various Just Enough OS (JeOS) options that are optimized for virtualization purposes - primarily to see what currently works under the MS VHD-based virtualization hosts (who knows about Windows 7 though…), using Virtual PC 2007 as the compatibility baseline. I’ve also taken Sun xVM VirtualBox 2.0 out for a spin on some […]
