An anonymous reader writes "I am getting ready to start trying out / learning the use of virtual machines. This is for personal use.
It would be good to run both Windows vms and linux vms. Early use would be maintaining multiple Windows installs using only one desktop computer with plenty of cores and memory. I would be starting with a Windows host, but probably later switching to a linux host after i learn more about linux.
Free is good, but reliability and ease of use are better.
What is the current Slashdot choice for a vm beginner:
vmware, zen, virtual box, etc. ???"
