Why do you use a Virtual Machine?samit said:do you use any other alternative
As far as I know, VMWare Workstation 8 (8.0.3) supports Windows 8 RP, as well as latest version of Oracle VirtualBox.Earth said:Anyone know if you can install VBox or others on Windows 8 RP (ie. is it supported)?
I think he is asking if virtualbox or other programs can be installed in the windows 8 Operating System. Not vise versa.biozfear said:
Oh my bad, I completely misunderstood the post.Earth said:Yes, can the Virtualisation software be installed in Windows 8 RP - I should have been clearer.
Because the Hyper-V in Windows 8 doesn't work for me.
It may not be something specific to Win 8. Two VBox releases ago, I've started having an issue where restoring a VM from a snapshot sometimes kills network connectivity.WinAndLinuxTutorials said:I've forgotten to say about the Issue I had with Windows 8 CP and VBox. If you put the computer in sleep and resume it, wifi will not work until you restart. An uninstall helped me solve the problem. Let's see how it goes with Windows 8 RP.
Yes, it does seem slower in certain instances, while in others, VBox seems quicker than VMWare.bogdan said:Somehow I still feel that Virtualbox is slightly slower than VMware under certain circumstances (Windows 7 host and linux guest) but it is an excellent open source product.
