    First time I really gave Ubuntu and VM Player a try so after installing VM Player I downloaded a Ubuntu appliance so I could have it already setup to give it a try. I am liking it so far. I had tried out different distros on my actual computer before but couldn´t get anything to run right. Now I get to take a real look at stuff with the VM. Don´t think I will make a total switch from Windows though. :thumb:

    You can isntall Ubuntu in VirtualBox. VB is free and a lot of fun. Lot of features as compared to VMware player.

    I might try that one next. This is the first time I used VM Player. I had used Microsoft VPC but it didn´t seem to do a good job with Linux. Only distros I had ever tried before this are Red Hat and Mandrake but couldn´t get them to work right to learn how to use them. I am liking this Ubuntu distro.

    I am having problems with the sound and my printer now. I might try this in virtualbox to see if it works out better.
