Debian and its clones "In this HowTo I will describe the steps to be taken to prepare a server for OpenVZ virtual machines on Debian 3.1 32Bit Linux. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual Private Servers on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of Virtuozzo, a commercial virtualization solution used by many providers that offer virtual servers. The OpenVZ kernal patch is licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under the QPL license."

Although very interesting i prefer Vmware.

There aren't many suitable apps like streamtuner and streamripper for windows.I just installed Dapper under Vmware and automatically cp back the mp3's via winscp3 to the media-player music folder.Works like a charm.

You probably don't know what OpenVZ is:). Let me explain. It is not VMWare_wanna_be. In fact they are completely different. You could compare VMWare against Xen (but in case of Windows install as VM you need hypervisor support on CPU). So, if you wanna have VM runing OS that supports Xen, you get much, much better performance than VMWare (few times better), if OS doesn't support Xen and you don't own CPU with hypervisor,... well... VMWare and QEMU are your friends:)

OpenVZ is something like Solaris Zones, BSD jail... More information here http://openvz.org/

And no, you can't install windows on it:)
