How to Install Linux in Windows With a VMware Virtual Machine
You’ve tried Linux from a live CD. Now you want to install it, but you’re unsure about dual booting. The sensible option is to install your chosen Linux operating system in a virtual machine (VM).
This means that a software environment replicates the conditions of a hardware environment: a personal computer. The environment is based on the hardware of your physical PC and limited only by the components within. For instance, you couldn’t have a virtual four core CPU on a processor with two cores.
However, while virtualization can be achieved on many systems, the results will be far superior on computers equipped with a CPU that supports it.
Several virtualization tools are available that make it easy to install Linux operating systems (OS) and there are many in Windows.
VMware produces the most accomplished virtual machine applications. Let’s find out how to install Linux in Windows with VMware Workstation Player.
I certainly find VMware Workstation to be more refined and better integrated on my MacOS than Oracle's VirtualBox.
