    Microsoft Virtual Box

    Great program, it allows you to run any OS, well almost any, in a small window while running Windows.

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate, I tried out Fedora, I think it's a keeper.

    I like that it allows me to change the CPU speed in Virtual-box, therefore I can transfer my CPU speed on windows to VirtualBox.

    I think Fedora is pretty good, easy to learn how to use, but it's a tad less organized.

    If anyone wants to try out Virtual box, Downloads - VirtualBox

    Oh, and you'll need the .iso file for any Linux server you want to run.

    This is more of a demo-program, so insted of installing a Linux server, you can test it first.

    Yes it is.

    Oh and if you have an android based phone, you can use your computer as a keyboard for it.

    It's pretty cool.

    Cool
    I use Virtual Box to run my web server only when I need it as a proxy at school or when I need to download files away from my home.

    I'm getting 1151.7 kB/s from them but anything from a good server like googles or something tops at around 10000 kB/s

    tl;dr (how it would be I don't know) their server is slow.

    I don't think VMware is made by Microsoft, is it?

    And personally, MSVB has better quality.

    VMWARE > VirtualBox.

    I can run 3 VMWARES, all of them on CF at once, and have over 45 FPS on each one.

    Also, if you try to run Crossfire in VirtualBox you'll get a Themida Warning, about how it can't run under a Virtual Machine.

    I don't run FPS games in VM's.

    So I don't have that problem,

    Like I said I only use MSVB to test Linux servers without the pain of installing.
