Jays Tip: Virtual Box

gnome

Virtualization I am sure you have heard of it.  What is it and what can it do for you? Well since this is a gaming site this may be important to you. Say you have a game that doesn’t work well on windows 8 or windows 7 it worked good on windows xp or windows 95 even.  How can you run it? Virtualization.  You take a full install of a operating system say windows xp and run it in a mini environment.  Now you can run what ever you want on it.. And NOW 3d GAME’s  for how much? FREE.. that’s right .. No money here thanks to open source and Oracle    https://www.virtualbox.org/  

XP running on linux

tm_mac_os_x

That’s right even Mac OSX can do it.. And it can be done both ways.. windows can run OSX.

tm_win7

Windows 7

You can also use it to run server environments but I am going to save that for another addition. I can do I how to if everyone wants me to. But for now this is all and you have to admit it is awesome.

Enjoy

JAY
