- most likely yes - some tablets on Intel silicon would be great because of the variety of software that you just cannot find on the ARM ones (yet) - say, VMware (but that might be pushing it).Apr 4, 2013
- I'd settle for just the the VMware management client. I used to keep a Windows XP VM under VirtualBox on my Ubuntu desktop solely to manage VMware hosts.Apr 4, 2013
- Since I started using Xen I have no interest in ever using VMWare ever again.
The CLI tools are far superior to VMWare in a production environment because you can automate everything. Xen Center is windows based too but is a major pain in the ass.Apr 4, 2013
- For sure Xen is much more powerful, however for my needs (single user, light system load for UI/UX testing) it would be total overkill and more trouble than anything I'd gain. So, VMware for me :-)Apr 4, 2013
- Sure. I use fusion on Mac and virsh on Linux. I also kind of like virtual box in a pinch. Though who knows when oracle will kill it with fire.Apr 4, 2013
- OhI forgot to mention. Schedule long and short smart tests on all member drives. I use a 1 week, 1 day schedule. Every day short test, every week long test. Tends to catch failing drives through exercise. Smartmontools is great for that.Apr 5, 2013
