What virtualization software can I use?
Well as the title reads, are there any other virtualization softwares in the mould of virtualbox be it proprietory or open source?
This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
KVM is Ubuntu's "official" virtualization platform.
Will get that installed for you. Or read the instructions in Synaptic to see if you machine qualifies (most ordinary PC's will).
