OSNews, Generic OSes "Visopsys (VISual OPerating SYStem) is an alternative operating system for PC-compatible computers, developed almost exclusively by one person, Andy McLaughlin, since its inception in 1997. Andy is a 30-something programmer from Canada, who, via Boston and San Jose ended up in London, UK, where he spends much of his spare time developing Visopsys. We had the great fortune to catch up with Andy via email and ask him questions about Visopsys, why he started the project in the first place, and where is it going in the future."

I wish there was a better virtualization program for Linux... VirtualBox seems too damn buggy and causes nothing but problems. Over the years, it still is a pain in the ass.


You mean apart from VMWare, Xen and KVM? You could even run qemu from the desktop, if you just wanted pure hardware emulation without any kernel optimisations.
