I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite A505 with following features:
- Intel Core i3 processor
- 8kB L1 cache, 64 kb L2 cache, 256kB L3 cache
- 4 GB RAM
- 500 GB HDD
I have used many operating systems on it. Ex: Win7/8, Ubuntu10.10/11.10/12.10, Linux 5.1 Open-SUSE and etc. I am working in such an environment where I must use many different operating systems. Ex: I need work on my Ubuntu machine for robotics applications and at the same time need to Win8 for some other research projects. Of course I use virtual machines and sometime even dual boot OS.
Right now I am trying to build a hierarchy for my system such will be static for me. My purpose is to install one operating system to entire HDD as a host and others as guest operating systems. So I'd like to choose the best operating system that can manage my laptop's hardware resources optimally. Then I`ll install other guest operating system.
Reason why I'm doing so is right now I use Win8 and Ubuntu 12.10 as dual boot, so if I need to do something in another system I have to reboot it. So I decided to install one host and others as guest operating system. Thank you :)
