Experiencing with vmware server and Sun xVM VirtualBox

Filed under
Software

Recently I have tried Sun xVM VirtualBox 1.6.4 , I have compare vbox with Vmware server 1.0.4. After couple days of testing, its time for me to share some personal findings towards them. I may not able to provide graphs, and accurate figures to shows their performance and specification, but what I do is to only share my point of view as a layman, and how I like or dislike them based on the user experience.

Before looking into performance and features, let us first look at the screenshot! I am loading up myrinix live cd at both virtual tool. The reason I choose myrinix because this great Live CD pre install with vbox guest additions as well as vmware tools, so that I can enjoy the mouse integration to move my mouse IN and OUT the guest os.

Performance and Resources Usage
Seems both Vmware Server and Virtual Box loading speed are equally fast, and it speed close to native while I rambling in guest OS. I have such feeling of Vbox start up is a little bit faster than vmware, but uses more CPU resources than vmware.

Rise of Linux – a hacker’s history

The original code of Linux was written for fun, or in Eric Raymond’s phrase, to ‘scratch the itch’ of Linus Torvalds, and later to satisfy the enthusiasm and programming itch of an assortment of hackers and hobbyists who, for the most part, had grown up in the age of the ZX80 and the BBC Micro, Acorns and Apricots, for which the code was often available – and hackable. For those who spent their childhood or adolescence delving into the home computers of the late Seventies and early Eighties, playing with software was a learning experience, and something to be shared. Linux could be said to have grown out of this ethos as much as it grew out of the free software movement, or the early Nineties culture of Usenet where “if you wrote something neat you posted it to Usenet” and the only proviso that came with the software was that “if the software breaks you get to keep both pieces.” Read more

Being a Sporadic Overview Of Linux Distribution Release Validation Processes

Our glorious Fedora uses Mediawiki to manage both test cases and test results for manual release validation. This is clearly ludicrous, but works much better than it has any right to. ‘Dress rehearsal’ composes of the entire release media set are built and denoted as Test Composes or Release Candidates, which can be treated interchangably as ‘composes’ for our purposes here. Each compose represents a test event. In the ‘TCMS’ a test event is represented as a set of wiki pages; each wiki page can be referred to as a test type. Each wiki page must contain at least one wiki table with the rows representing a concept I refer to as a unique test or a test instance. There may be multiple tables on a page; usually they will be in separate wiki page sections. Read more
