I'm running an ubuntu 10.4 server with no X and a windows XP (running
autocad 2009) clients on ubuntu hosts using libvirt - on a phenom X4
905e and a Turion X2 laptop, both 4G ram.
I'll change my desktop soon to a VM also, now is a dual boot ubuntu
and XP (for games).
The original post was about changing to a wine environment, but I
think it changed to the pros and cons of emulated/virtual
environments, so I created a new topic.
Chan: How can I say it in other words, because I think you didn't get
IMO, If someone thinks virtualization will make os or software run
faster, didn't understood what is virtualization.
So I was saying don't know what is meant by can't run "very good" on a
About the advantages, I was not trying to be exhaustive. Those are the
ones I think is harder to do without virtualization.
You had already mentioned backup with lvm snapshot, I think.
If anyone wants to add more, please do.
But, after reading Russ response again, I'm not sure if he don't have
a point.As I said, imo, of course video editing and sound editing apps
will not "run better" (as in faster) in a virtualized
environment. That's not the point, they will run slower.
What I don't know if those will work as if in the native os and
hardware (even if slower), or if they will work at all?
My concerns are with the available graphics card abstractions and the
drivers for it.
So, for example, can we play battlefield on a windows client?
didn't find any googling with someone that really tried it, but it
seems no (no compatible graphics).
