Virtualization

BlueLightSpecial BlueLightSpecial writes  |  more than 7 years ago I am looking to use an OS emulation/virtualization software (Like microsoft virtual PC) to emulate different OS's, just to try out, tinker with them, and see if I like them, and to learn more about Linux/other OSes other than Windows, I've run windows my whole life, so im pretty new to linux/anything else, other than briefly running and earlier version of Fedora Core. Some ideas of what i'd like to run: Fedora 7, Ubuntu, openSUSE, Slackware. I've used Virtual PC to run Fedora Core 5 awhile back, but I had to change many display settings to get it to be workable, I'm just wondering, is there anything out there thats more compatable with those OS's, or is Virtual PC my best option. The computer I will be running the systems on runs Visa Home Premium (i know i know, im testing new OS's for a reason), and has plenty of free hard drive space and specs to meet program's requirements
