Bloke runs 100 operating systems at once

Filed under
Linux

A GEEZER on a Linux forum is claiming that he has managed to get more than 100 operating systems to run at the same time on one machine.

According to the JustLinux forum, the bloke who goes by the handle of Saikee used four disks in more than 149 partitions. He stuffed them all onto a machine based around a Asrock 939NF4G CPU motherboard, an AMD 64 3200 with 1024MB RAM.

He used Grub to boot all of the operating systems because he said that it was the only one capable of handing a large number of systems.

Full Story.


Ummm.....No

Title is wrong - he has 100 OS's on his system, and can boot into any ONE of them at one time.

He would need VM or XEN or some other type of virtual manager to run 100 OS's at once.

In other words, it's just a stunt to gather media attention.

Yawn.
