I’ve been intending to install Ubuntu Hardy Heron in a virtual machine for a while now, but have been scared off a bit by reports of incompatibilities with the cleverer bits of virtual/real interaction. It’s a shame, because I am thoroughly enjoying using a bare-metal installation, and would like the flexibility and portability of using it on other machines, too.
This blog post seems to indicate that there is a success path through this, though. I’ll give it a go when I get a chance.
Update: looks like I wasn’t really paying attention. This article is describing the other way round – running Windows on Ubuntu. SIgh.
