143Re: A 'Virtual' Solution?
- Mar 7, 2008The problem with virtual solutions is that they do not work so well on
older PCs with lower RAM.
The up side is that if you have a PC with the horsepower to give good
performance, this option can "solve" a lot of the issues, since the
native OS for a program is supported.
I have heard about Virtual Box, but have not tried it.
I have tried using Qemu. It seems to be a good option and Debian has a
GUI to help configure it. I got Win98SE running in Qemu on my 1GHz PC
with 256 MB RAM, needless to say, it is slowww. NoteTab worked, but I
did not try printing.
What I like about using Wine is that it does not have the need for so
At some point, I hope to be able to get a new PC that will have the
power to try these virtual environments and get a usable configuration.

be used in its native environment without jumping though hoops with
Wine, and Linux is still the main operating system. I have heard very
good things about VirtualBox, and it's free.
