VM is still alive, continuing to be enhanced and doing well.

Interesting articles on running Linux as a VM guest.

Very cool stuff to play with if you can afford the toys.

Well I'm 43 and have 5 PCs/Servers in my study running Gnu/Linux.  I
started as a trainee programmer on a Honeywell maiunframe in '79.

And I know there are plenty older and more skilled than me.


    Ditto. I'm pushing 44, and I have three Linux servers and two WinPCs.  

    Please, sonny.  We grandpappys were programming Unix before you were even conceived of.    Hell, I was programming Bell Version 3 back in 1980.

    So, y'all hush up now and respect your elders :-)
