I wish to virtualize my computer life. However, I face an abundance of choices from which you will help me select the right one.
I have a Windows XP Pro machine on which I'd occasionally like to run a virtual Windows XP machine and maybe a lightweight Linux server (probably without a GUI). I currently run VMWare server on it and am pretty happy with that.
So is it worth playing with VirtualBox at all?
Secondly, I have a Linux box (Ubuntu) on which I'd like to regularly run a Windows XP virtual machine. I have experience with VMWare on Linux, but also know that Xen may be a good option. Or maybe VirtualBox. Not having it break every time I apt-get and install the latest kernel would certainly be a bonus.
What are the pros and cons here? And are there other solutions worthy of consideration?
