I am planning to buy either VMware or Parallels so that I can install Ubuntu and use that instance as a deployment environment. I am not sure which one is better for this purpose. Please share your experience on this issue. Thanks.

Which host OS will you be using? I've been using Parallels on Mac with great success and while I briefly switched to VMWare the general responsiveness of Parallels felt a lot better. I also haven't had any stability issues at all so my suggestion would be to try out Parallels first. (Although in my case the client OS is Vista and not Ubuntu so your mileage might vary) On 6/21/07, email@example.com <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > -- Armand, du Plessis http://shortersigs.com/5041ZH92ZJPW

We use Parallels, for winXP, but one of us has been using the vmware beta and wants to switch pretty bad. I just saw a "how to install ubuntu with parallels" step by step in an RSS feed... google for that... maybe glean something there...

I am on PowerPC Mac with 2GB RAM. What is the maximum memory that you can allocate to the parallels instance?

You can't run Paralels or VMware Fusion on a PPC Mac, perhaps QEMU will do it? Tiago Macedo
