Kubuntu and Parallels

Filed under
Mac

While I was away, Parallels brought out the release candidate of the virtual machine software for Mac OS X. Now I think I might have found the perfect Linux OS to run within a Parallels VM.

I'm still thoroughly impressed with Parallels - so much so, I haven't touched VMware for months. I've also never booted into Windows XP through Boot Camp again since I first tried it out after release.

Why?

I don't need it - Parallels absolutely rocks at whatever I throw at it. THe majority of the time I'm running Linux, mostly Gentoo, because the source based installation system suits my needs for testing and building development environments.

Full Story.
