This week’s TechMail is How to use Virtual Machine Manager on Fedora 11 which discusses my first foray into using Virtual Machine Manager and KVM. It’s no surprise that I’m a big virtualization fan, but this is the first time I’ve used something baked directly into the Linux kernel. I’ve played with qemu, vmware workstation/server/fusion, and openvz, but never KVM. It’s definitely different, but quite good. I’ve got a test F11 setup in KVM on my F11 laptop to use for breaking things that I don’t want to break on the “real” system. Extremely useful and quite light-weight.
